About Us

SACCO is a registered charity working in partnership with other local organisations to highlight issues that affect our community.

We organize meetings and social and community events with a view to decreasing social isolation and promoting diversity in the community. We also organise a varied schedule of events for the wider community during Black History Month. Our mentoring schemes introduce Young People to careers in the creative and food industries, while our outreach work has included collaboration and meetings with local schools, hate crime organisations, youth schemes and Sutton United. Kaleidoscope (available online and in hard copy format) is our fledgling magazine which gives a regular overview of our charity initiatives, together with articles on African, Caribbean and British culture, politics, history, and sport, with a view to giving writers of all social backgrounds a voice on their topics of interest.

Our meetings 

SACCO meetings take place on the third week of every month, 7-9 pm on Thursday evenings in Sutton’s Civic Offices. Tea and coffee is provided and there is wheelchair access. Additional meetings are scheduled at our busiest times of the year, and may be arranged informally in relation to specific projects. If coming by car, you are advised to park in the adjacent public car park in Gibson Road, or on the available free parking spaces in or around Trinity Square. Several buses stop in front of the Civic Centre. Please contact us for further details, or visit the 'Get Involved' section of this website for further details of our current voluntary opportunities.

Please note that in line with public health guidelines, our meetings are temporarily suspended due to the COVID-19 outbreak. The trustees and committee members are happy to answer your enquiries via email.
