Pakistan Community Centre is a focus for the Pakistani community.Our AIM is to provide service for all communities regardless of the race, beliefs, views and religion. We provide advice on benefits, and help with visa and passport issues and we also offer some sports opportunities for young & old people, particularly Gymnasium facilities.
The Centre provides one of the biggest community halls in the East Midlands. It is used for wedding receptions, community events, meetings, faith celebrations and parties. Weddings can involve catering for approximately 2,000 people over a weekend. The community hall may be split by partitions to provide for gender separate groups. Income from these events provides the core revenue for the Centre.
We have been involved with helping in the recruitment of Pakistanis into further education, training & jobs.
The centre is also is used on occasion for recruitment events (e.g. by Derbyshire Constabulary and the NHS Health Trust).
We run a social club for mature adults.
We host the Minority Senior Citizen luncheon club and a drop in. The luncheon club runs once a week, uses volunteer staff, and is typically attended by local people. The drop in provides a daily service including light refreshments.
There are other community structures, such as Job Education & Training & the Mosques, the closest of which is the Jamia mosque on Rosehill Street with whom we have an excellent relationship and a clear division of function. We work closely with the mosques and the Islamic Education Centre on issues which affect our community and to ensure that we put out cohesive messages.
PCC is also an active member of Normanton and Arboretum Neighbourhood Boards to stay aware of any changes affecting the local communities and any issues that are around and can affect the environment of the city. This also helps us to tailor our services and allow us to give a feedback on hot issues.
