CCCFC

Welcome 歡迎

The London CCC was founded in 1980 and was the first Chinese Community Centre in the United Kingdom. The Centre’s mission is to preserve and promote Chinese culture, arts and identity, whilst helping the community to better integrate into mainstream UK community. The Centre is one of the busiest centres for Chinese culture and its communities in Europe and has attracted several Royal visits. Our team of well-trained staff, dedicated volunteers and professional management committee members provide wide-ranging support and activities. These range from welfare and benefits support and advice to language classes, cultural and recreational activities, elderly support, a healthy eating luncheon club, youth club and fundraising events. The Centre continually strives to meet the changing and growing demand for services and activities within this evolving community in a climate of reduced government funding.  We are always looking for ways to build on this and be better at what we do.

We are facing severe cuts to our funding and donations due to the current economic climate and would therefore welcome any donations which can be done when visiting the centre or via our donation page

倫敦華人社區中心於一九八零年成立,是英國首間華人社區中心。本中心使命是維護和推廣中國文化、藝術和身份認同,同時幫助華人社區更好地融入英國主流社會。而現有的服務,讓中心成為整個歐洲國家中最繁忙的華人社區中心之一,更常有英國皇室人員親自造訪我們訓練有素的員工、熱誠無限的義工和擁有各類專業知識的管理委員,組成一支龐大的團隊服務華社,隨時候命提供廣泛的支援和活動:從福利諮詢及援助,至語言課程、文娛康體活動、長者支援、健怡午餐會、青少年俱樂部和捐募活動等。本中心不因政府減少資助而氣餒,仍將繼續秉誠「竭盡所能、服務社群」為宗旨,不斷配合現今社會的變化並致力滿足華社的需求。採用更充實的服務與時並進,做到更好

最後基於中心面臨財困極盼望有心人仕能慷慨解囊共襄善舉歡迎親臨中心或網上捐獻
