The work of the Somali Counselling Project in the UK

  • Omar E. Dihour and Anthony J. Pelosi (a1)
Extract

The Somali Counselling Project was established in London's East End in December 1986 with the support of a grant from the City Parochial Foundation. It offers social support and psychosocial counselling to Somalis and other culturally related peoples from the Horn of Africa who are living in the United Kingdom. Its aims are: to advise on social, administrative and financial problems; to help clients make effective use of mainstream health services; to prevent and treat emotional disorder; and to provide administrative and emotional assistance to those with uncertain immigration status.
