SCT’s African Caribbean Adventure!


Sheffield Care Trust (SCT) and the SACMHA (The Sheffield African Caribbean Mental Health Association) have held a multicultural extravaganza at the Longley Centre.

More than 100 SCT service users, family, friends and members of staff celebrated African and Caribbean culture at the event.

Visitors were entertained by Caribbean Calypso music provided by The Paradise Steel band, and a performance of traditional African dancing and drumming with Khula African Arts.

African and Caribbean cuisine was also on the menu at the event at the Adult Acute inpatient department at the Longley Centre.

Over recent years the Acute Inpatients service have made efforts to celebrate key religious and cultural events to both help raise awareness of cultural differences and to reassure patients and their families that their cultural values and beliefs are important part of the service.

Aston Wynter, manger for SACHMA said: “It is important to for people particularly from the BME communities to have a say in how services develop.”

The celebration brought people from all walks of life together to learn and enjoy African and Caribbean culture and revellers enthused about the festivals electric atmosphere.

Kim Parker, from SCT added: “This was a fantastic event and was enjoyed by everyone who attended.”
