About Us

Welcome To TAARC

Who We Are

In 2016 five likeminded individuals came together to create a charity to showcase African and Caribbean cultures here in Telford & Wrekin. We seek to create safe spaces within the community in order to support disadvantaged children and young people, and vulnerable adults. This aim includes creating a place for social, educational and community activities; plus building and strengthening community cohesion.

We obtained charity status February 2017 - England and Wales Charity No:1171645.

Our establishment was initially made possible by Telford & Wrekin Council and Telford Elim Community Church. We rely on the generosity of sponsors and with the continued support from charitable organisations, businesses and individuals we say thank you all for your support - we are truly grateful.

TAARC’s volunteers and friends make invaluable contributions to our work in the community.
