Established in 1981, the Camden Chinese Community Centre is currently located on Tavistock Place. Our major revenue funders are Social Services, VSU and Nursery Education. We deliver the following projects:
Additionally we offer a wide range of community activities and house regular mini-surgeries by local opticians, dentists and healthcare practitioners. Our daily luncheon club for the Elderly serves at least 30 diners per day and overall the Centre serves 30,000 user visits per year averaging 600 visits per week. Our aim is to enable local people to access activities and services by providing a native language link between the vulnerable people and statutory service providers. We have over 1300 members of whom the majority are mainly older people, women, immigrants, preschool children and young people. Our funders recognise the quality and need for our Services and have actively encouraged our growth, as we are the only ethnic organisation that provides such a range of services. Our new Centre will enable us to continue to provide quality services for the community.
Women’s Group Various activities are organised regularly including health talks, day trips, cookery sessions, swimming classes, IT training course, and celebrations for example at Mid-Autumn festival, Chinese New Year, Easter.
ESOL Class Westminster Kingsway College provides two English classes at our Centre. Daily two-hourly sessions are arranged in the afternoons from Monday to Thursday.
