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.

Latest news

We are all very excited here because, with the help of Laing O’Rourke, a dedicated space has been refurbished on the first floor of the community centre. This is the site of the new Job Hub funded through the Neighbourhood Forum and LBC. As previously posted we have an Employment and Training Adviser, Julia Marcus, who is already hard at work supporting local people with individually tailored packages. These offer pre-employability training,  practical advice, help with CVs, interview skills and access to local jobs. We are also working with many specialist agencies who will be operating from the new Job Hub space. If you would like to arrange an appointment with Julia call now on 07949 144230.

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!

The Neighbourhood  Planning Forum has engaged eight local people to knock on doors in Somers Town and consult  residents about living in the area and what changes they would like to see. The result of this work  will be collated and  will influence the shape and future of the Neighbourhood Plan. Please support this by taking part in the consultation and get involved by attending the first Annual General Meeting of the Somers Town Neighbourhood Planning Forum on Monday 15 December, 6.00pm at the Somers Town Community Centre.

Mindful of the positive role of sport and physical activity  in maintaining a good level of well being, Somers Town Community Association has joined forces with London Borough of Camden and the West Euston Partnership.  Sports Activators based  across Somers Town and Regents Park will deliver a project which is designed to develop a culture of sports participation by individuals and will incorporate a range of training and volunteering opportunities. Funded by Sport England, for three years, this project will develop community based opportunities and promote increased participation and access. In short the project will encourage people to be more active, hopefully more healthy and happier.

Somers Town Community Assoc. in partnership with Somers Town Youth Club, Corams Youth Centre and  the Surma Centre have had a great success in securing funding  from the Big Lottery  to support a full time worker and two trainees to deliver dedicated work to girls and young women for the next three years. Working across four youth centres and providing up to six sessions a week the new youth workers will be managed from STCA and will be recruited for in the New Year. Sessions will aim to support and create the kind of environment which will expand  opportunities, build confidence and see an expansion of activities and influence  for girls and young women across the South Camden area.
