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.

We have been very excited to participate in this far reaching project considering the question of what does “wellbeing” mean for our community. Initiated by Sarah Strang, Artist in Residence at the Royal College of General Practitioners, this project has engaged with residents and members of the RCGP to explore the experience of care within an extended framework of visual art.
The Birth of Wellbeing is a project about community relations, memory and local history, exploring through a form of consultation comprising walks, interviews, surveys and photography, how these factors might relate to healthcare policy and provision and contribute to a sense of wellbeing in the central London district of Somers Town.”  Press Release

After strenuous efforts by all those involved Chalton Street Market looks set for a significant revival of fortune.
Efforts by our local Councillors , STCA  and other organisations in the area have resulted in a plan to regenerate the market into a thriving local hub. Reduced daily rates for stalls have been negotiated and  we look forward to seeing a diverse range of traders adding to the rich mix that is Somers Town.

FoodCycle’s Hub, serves tasty meals every Sunday lunchtime at the Somers Town Community Centre. Each week, volunteers collect surplus fruit and veg from our local Planet Organic and Waitrose supermarkets  and turn these ingredients into nutritious (and delicious!) three-course meals for the community.
If you’re struggling to make ends meet  and need a free meal on a Sunday afternoon, you can come along to the Somers Town Community Centre at 1PM – anyone is welcome


You can volunteer at Somers Town!
