Ocean Somali Community Association
Ocean Somali Community Association is a voluntary organisation which was established in 2001 by professionals and Somalis, with the goal of strengthening communication and linkages between service providers and the Somali community. Our genesis was as a direct response to the lack of services to the Somali community residing in the East End in particularly LB Tower Hamlets.
Over the years, we have developed a significant number of very unique services to meet the needs of Somalis and grown to become the strongest Somali organisations in London.
