Bringing Communities Together

Israac Somali Community Association

‘Israac’ means ‘Unity’ in Somali.

For coronavirus information for Israac, please see our COVID19 update

Israac is a Sheffield-based Charity offering an inclusive and warm welcome to the Sheffield Somali community and embracing all communities in the local area.

Running for over 30 years, we have worked to support local communities with social spaces, services and activities that local people identify as helpful and enriching. We offer support to communities to maintain a strong cultural identity whilst promoting positive integration & social cohesiveness.

Israac members purchased our vestry hall complex as a community asset in 2017. We host a restaurant run by a professional chef with delicious, healthy, good value meals and snacks. We have community spaces available both for our community activities and events and for hire for community purposes. We’re proud of our Diaspora Multimedia Hub & studio (DMH) in partnership with Eryal TV and Sheffield Hallam University which runs film courses for young people and produces videos.
