Supporting the Eritrean community in the UK

About us

The Eritrean Muslim Community Association (EMCA) is a charity, which was founded in 1989 to meet the social, welfare and cultural needs of the growing number of Eritrean refugees living in the United Kingdom. These needs are principally in the areas of education, health, benefits, casework and counselling, languages learning, family counselling and social/cultural events.


Its aims are to address the welfare and social needs of members of the Eritrean community in in the UK, developing activities which preserve our Islamic and Eritrean cultural heritage and which foster mutual help and support from within the community. 


We focus on meeting the needs of particularly disadvantaged members of our community: women and single mothers, young people with drugs, alcohol and mental health problems, asylum seekers and refugees.  We also seek to improve educational and employment prospects of Eritreans in the UK.

Examples include: 

·         Dawa programs

·         Islamic awareness events

·         Workshops on issues such  as tackling issues related to anti social behaviour crimes

·         Social and cultural events available to people of all ages in the community
