SOUTHBROOK COMMUNITY ASSOCIATION  

Reg. Charity No. 308069


 

Southbook Community Association (SCA) was formed by a group of local residents on the Southbrook Estate in 1971.  They raised funds through weekly subscriptions, raffles and social fundraising events, to build a Community Centre for residents of the estate to use as a meeting place for recreational and educational purposes. The building was later extended to accommodate more people due to the demand for a bigger venue.
