Our Community.

What We Do

 MSCA has a proven track record of service delivery going back almost 40 years.

There is a large and growing sector of the community that relies on the services that MSCA offers. We provide a much-needed, vital lifeline for local people who would otherwise not have the support they need to deal with a growing range of issues and challenges they face on a daily basis. As well as the traditional client base of the Somali communities, over the last five years we have seen widened participation and take up of services and facilities from new communities such as Syrian, Sudanese, Libyan, EU citizens, Ethiopians, Eritrean and many other refugee communities.

We deliver services in direct response to expressed need and levels of demand from the community: centre users and local residents talk to us about their needs and concerns. We check annually that we are appropriately by undertaking an annual user survey.

Our Mission

To make a positive difference in the lives of the Somali and other BAMER communities living in Merseyside by improving community welfare and cohesion.

To further or benefit the residents of Merseyside in a common effort to advance education, relieve sickness, relieve poverty and to provide facilities in the interest of social welfare for recreation leisure time occupation with the objective of improving the conditions of life for the residents.

    Become a Sponsor. Volunteer or Get Involved.

    Our links in the community are strong, and we are mindful that with decreasing resources we do not duplicate the services offered elsewhere. We achieve this by broadening our partnership arrangements and being more pro-active in seeking to work with others. If you think that you can help we would love to hear from you.
