‘Israac’ means ‘Unity’ in Somali.

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

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.
