Greater Sylhet Development & Welfare Council in the UK (GSC) is a registered nationwide charity organisation serving British Bangladeshi community since 1993. It has 12 regional committee and 10 branches across the UK including Scotland, Northern Ireland and Wales.
We work with the various ministries of government for the welfare of British Bangladeshi community in UK and wider society for community cohesion and integrations with the British society.
Up to 95% of Bangladeshis living in the United Kingdom either originate or come from the Greater Sylhet Region (Sylhet, Maulvibazar, Habiganj and Sunamganj) of Bangladesh. The people of Sylhet have made great contributions to the construction of their homeland (Bangladesh), as well as towards the present multi-racial British society and have a natural link with Greater Sylhet and thus, they always extend their helping hands for any cause be it for the war for liberation as it was in 1971 or for helping Bangladesh as a whole in natural calamities like cyclone or floods.
Despite such a record or contribution and devotion, it is said that the community and its region back in Bangladesh faced multiple deprivation in all aspects of life.
