Socco Cheta is managed by a consortium of dynamic local community groups, including South Norwood Community Kitchen, Croydon Domino Club, Screen25, and Croydon BME Forum. We have been working with the consortium for several years to make the building more accessible and increase its street presence.
Based at Socco Cheta for over 40 years, the Croydon Domino Club provides a social focal point for the Black Caribbean British community. As part of the project, the club is extending its membership, establishing a youth team and continuing the social and advice service it has provided at Socco Cheta over the past fifteen years.
South Norwood Community Kitchen previously operated from a nearby church. They take unwanted food and donations from supermarkets and locals, cook it up and serve hot food in a social environment.
