Welcome to Somers Town Community Association

STCA is a locally managed Charity and Voluntary Organisation set in the heart of the bustling, thriving ward of St Pancras and Somers Town. We are located adjacent to Kings Cross and St Pancras International rail stations. Our users are people who live or work in the area  and have been making decisions about what services we deliver for over 30 year. This means that STCA has been responsive and listening to our communities needs and seen three generations using our centre.

What we do?

We offer a wide range of activities and services catering for children, young people and adults from our whole community. We have something for everyone and if you have any ideas about things you would like to see going on let us know.

Our new Sports Activator team based at STCA, introduce themselves here:
“Hello my name is Andy Gilbert, I am the new Community Sports Activator for the Somers Town area and the project I will be delivering is called Camden Active All Areas.  The idea behind the project is to encourage local residents to become active and to help achieve this, over the next 3 years I will be delivering a diverse range of sports to suit the needs of you, the Somers Town resident.  Working alongside me in the role of Sport Development Officer will be Juan Manning. Juan has a keen interest in sports, especially Basketball and he also plays for Camden Basketball team.
To ensure this project suits your needs, I encourage you to give me feedback on the type of sports which you would like to see in your area. There is nothing to stop anyone of any age, ability, ethnicity or disability becoming active in sport.  Our projects are designed to suit the needs of the individual. If you would like to find out more information on the project or how to get involved then please contact me on Andrew.gilbert@camden.gov.uk or call 07825102010. You can also find me at the Somers Town Community Association on Mondays and Thursdays.”

These offer pre-employability training,  practical advice, help with CVs, interview skills and access to local jobs. We are also working along with other agencies  e.g. Origin Housing and Kings Cross Recruit who are operating from the Job Hub space.

More than 35 partners including Somers Town Community Association,  have joined together to create a consortium  (KQ) representing members drawn from  academic, cultural, research, scientific, media and community backgrounds . There is a huge interest in the area and a focus on emerging possibilities brought about by dialogue  and  “support for innovation, collaboration and knowledge exchange”.  KQ  “will establish crucial connections to achieve productive partnerships , fruitful networks and creative interaction.” Somers Town CA has already experienced a number of very productive partnership projects as a result of working with Central St Martins  so watch this space for more developments!
