Our Story

Greater Sylhet Development and Welfare Council (GSC) in UK is a voluntary and nationwide charity organisation established in 1993. The organisation is run by an elected National Executive Committee and is governed by a constitution. GSC has twelve regional committees and ten Branches. GSC works with various ministries of government for the welfare of the British Bangladeshi community in the 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.
