Holocaust Survivors’ Centre (HSC)

Jewish Care's Holocaust Survivors Centre is the only place of its kind anywhere in the UK. More than 500 survivors and refugees are supported at the Centre through a specific programme of social, cultural and therapeutic activities. 


The Shalvata service, with its specialist team offering counselling and social work support, is for those dealing with trauma. Many survivors who attend the centre have built strong friendships there and say they consider it a “home” where they can share experiences with those who understand what they have been through.
