The CARAF Centre

The CARAF Centre is a community organisation which aims to ensure families of African and Caribbean heritage and people from disadvantaged communities have the knowledge, skills and opportunities to achieve and live the best lives

The CARAF Centre has provided supplementary education, social support and cultural activities for children, young people and parents since 1980. However, with the increasing cuts in funding and the extreme competitiveness to secure funds from national trusts, we rely heavily on voluntary donations to fund our vital work.

On Sunday 30th August the Black Riders Association will be embarking on an 80 mile cycle from London to Southend (and back), to raise funds for The CARAF Centre services, and to help raise awareness about health and fitness post-COVID in our community. Our centre staff will also be completing Southend spin-cycle challenges, to ensure the most vulnerable families in our community can continue to be supported during these unprecedented times. 

Please donate towards our campaign and share with friends and family, any contribution could make a huge difference to our community.
