The London Chinese Community Centre was founded in 1980 and was the first Chinese Community Centre in the UK. It was pioneered by Dr Abraham Lue. Dr. Lue was a volunteer teacher at the Chinese Language School in Euston. He realised there was a growing demand and need for support services for the Chinese Community when parents used to come to him for advice and ask for his assistance in translating letters from schools, councils and doctors.
With Dr. Lue’s vision and determination the Chinese Community Centre opened in the heart of London’s Chinatown and has been serving Britain’s Chinese community for over 40 years.
What we do
The quality of life and well-being of the Chinese community, particularly for those who are disadvantaged.
What we want
members of the Chinese community, and to work with them to meet their needs.
What we aim
on preserving Chinese culture, arts and identity.
