Southfield Community Action Forum (SCAF) was established in 2002 to meet the growing needs of the community. SCAF aims to improve the general welfare of residents in the Southfield, Walverden and Marsden areas. It believes in equal opportunities for all regardless of race, colour, religion or age. Its goal is to work together with local people to develop communities so that they are vibrant, cohesive and tolerant with mutual respect for all.

SCAF aims to provide:

Volunteering opportunities to support:

  • Families in need
  • Young people through mentoring
  • Community activities for young people

Learning opportunities to enable individuals to:

  • Gain new skills
  • Build confidence & self esteem

Opportunities for families from different communities to:

  • Learn


  • Work
  • Play together

Make accessible information and advice on:

  • Careers
  • Training & education
  • Lifestyle choices

Volunteers are essential to many of the projects undertaken by SCAF in which they fulfill a vital role in supporting staff as well as members of the local Community.

Whatever the role, volunteers can expect to acquire new skills and experiences, the appropriate training for the job and excellent support and opportunities to make a positive difference with the local community.
