The Northwest London Somali Project was funded by the Heritage Lottery Fund.

The Somali Advice and Forum of Information (SAAFI) worked in partnership with LIFT, Brent Museum and Archives and a team of volunteers to deliver the Northwest London Somali Project.

We explored and captured the lives and the experience of Somali community in Brent in the form of oral history and photography. The project trained young people to conduct oral history interviews to: discover the experience of moving to or growing up in Brent; discuss what it means to be part of the Somali and Brent communities; and develop understanding between generations of Somali people and throughout the wider Brent community.
