About us

Sufra NW London addresses both the causes and consequences of extreme poverty, homelessness and social isolation in the community. Our emergency interventions and innovative courses provide a life-line to people in crisis – empowering them to improve their wellbeing, learn new skills, find work and become financially stable.
