Supporting, helping and empowering the poor, elderly and vulnerable Chinese in the United Kingdom
Chinese Welfare Trust was conceived as a national charity bringing together representatives from different political parties to work together to benefit the Chinese community at large.
There are many chinese community organisations in London and scattered across the country that do excellent work locally. We hope to work with these organisations, identifying the needs of the most vulnerable to ensure that no one is left behind. As a national charity we will have greater political clout to lobby for changes in policies and in the delivery of services affecting our community.
What we do
Our first priority is to meet the needs of Chinese elders living in the UK. Many older Chinese find themselves isolated, marginalised and lonely. We are working with different housing associations to help them cater to the special needs of their Chinese residents as well as to sign post those seeking sheltered housing and extra-care homes to housing schemes where there are vacancies.
We currently employ a floating support worker working part-time with Soho Housing Trust and part-time for CWT.
We have the long term vision of building an extra-care home in London.
