About us

We are also considering subbranches in Southwark and Waltham Forest.

All projects are developed based on assessed need and thereafter provided in partnership with beneficiaries, stakeholders, and members. For those members of our community who have a limited command of English, the disadvantage suffered due to not being able to read or understand is heightened.

With the economic climate at its worse since the 1930s, a downturn in services offered by advice bureaus, restriction in accessible benefits and unemployment at record levels, have all placed an immense strain on people(s) ability to deal with debt. The burden on charities to provide debt/financial planning to those most in need is immense, and many charities are unable to bridge the gap between required provision and finances.

In recent months this has been expatiated with the Covid 19 pandemic which has plagued our nation since March of this year. With these charities have had to further juggle the need to serve people in need and balance their books ensuring that they have the stability to move forward.

Our Vision and Mission

Our raison d’etre is to support our community through our self-funded and internally created and externally tendered projects. These projects must provide a springboard for Turkish speaking people to either increase quality of life or gain training and support that will ultimately result in them not requiring government benefits to survive.

Through recognising the developments within our own community and contact with government bodies and locally sympathetic NGO’s, the TCCA will in time create more fresh projects and offer help in the most deprived corners of our community.

Our ambition is to improve lives for the short and long term and to contribute to wider society. Our full charitable objectives and breakdown are as set out in our memorandum and articles of association. Copies of these are available at the TCCA office for anyone who wishes to review them.

Governance and management

We adhere to a strict governance policy for making and putting into action all decisions and spending. Our board of Trustees takes responsibility as a collective for the overall running and financial processes in the organisation.

As we are keen to that we remain transparent we are inspected by CQC, Your Value, Pre-viable and Cache we also adhere to PQASSO, Investors in People, Investors in Communities, Locality and Hackney Health. Further to main trustees’ meetings we have sub committees that are appointed from time to time current committees include: Finance, Homecare, Property, Festival and Staffing.

Our accounts are securitised by auditors and have a full audit completed rather than an Independent Evaluation.
