Welcome to Community education forum

We're a grassroots charity based in Hammersmith and Fulham and we strongly believe community-based educational programs can have a transformational effect on community and social cohesion. 

Who We Are

Community Education Forum (CEF) was established in 1999 to identify and support the social, educational, training, health, economic and developmental needs for young people and their families in West London.

We are a grass root community-led organisation and charity. Our work focuses on developing and delivering community-led projects that help develop the social, educational and economical needs of the community.

Project Wayeel

Community Education Forum (CEF)  was awarded a grant to run a day centre for elderly people within the Somali community. CEF  saw that there was a need from this community as they were underserviced when it it came to elderly care in the borough of Hammersmith and Fulham. The project started in July 2019 and ran until March 2020. The project was initially designed to run  for 12 weeks. However, as we had a positive response from the service users, we extended it to 24 weeks. We were able to do this because we changed the project from running two days a week into running for one day a week.
