about us

The N1C centre is a multipurpose community centre. The heart of King’s Cross is one of the most exciting places to be in central London.  This part of the capital has become a vibrant mix of new homes, offices, public spaces, with a range of cultural and education organisations enriching the neighbourhood.  It is estimated that 20,000 people now spend their work, home or leisure time in the area.  


Somali Youth Development Resource Centre (SYDRC) is youth community-based organisation that has been working with young Somali people and other young people in Camden and neighbouring boroughs since 2000. SYDRC is unique in Camden as the only youth lead organisation providing activities and services for young people. SYDRC is also believed to be the only Somali organisation in Britain that is a youth-led, and this is reflected in the membership of this Youth Advisory and Management committee. This uniqueness has enabled SYDRC to develop good working relationships with key agencies and stakeholders working to tackle key social issues affecting young Somali people including gang-related activities, knife and gun crime, educational underachievement, school exclusions and anti-social behaviour.
