Sufra NW London is a north-west London charity established in 2013 to address both the causes and consequences of impoverishment and poverty in the London Borough of Brent community.

Based on St Raphael’s Estate, Brent’s most disadvantaged neighbourhood – almost in the shadow of Wembley Stadium – the Sufra NW Community Hub provides a life-line for people in crisis, including families living in extreme poverty and people who are vulnerable, homeless and socially isolated.

They provide their “guests” with the food and support they urgently need to survive, empower them to learn new skills and improve their wellbeing, and help them find work and become financially stable.

By working together and harnessing the goodwill of their neighbours, their aim is to build a stronger community one in which no one suffers alone in silence.
