Who We Are

Elbistan Community Centre is a registered charity located in North London. Previously known as Bakis Community Centre, the name was changed on the 1st of April 2012, to Elbistan Community Centre (El-Com). El-Com was formed primarily by the Kurdish and/or the Alevi minority in the UK who migrated from Elbistan, a town located in South-East Turkey.

There are approximately 10,000 people in the UK who have migrated from Elbistan and the later generations. The majority of these people are directly connected to our community centre and as we have over 1400 registered members.
