Forum on the state of UK Chinese community organisations and their future

Join us for a discussion in the House of Lords on 20 February 2019 on our newly released research report, "Chinese Community Centres in the UK: Changing Landscape, Challenges and Strategies for the Future".

Launched in October 2018 at our 10th anniversary dinner celebration, this report aims to document the changes and coping mechanisms experienced by Chinese community organisations in the last ten years, based on information gathered from key informants from 14 Chinese community organisations in four major UK cities – London, Manchester, Birmingham and Liverpool.

This forum, hosted by Lord Tom McNally, is an opportunity for stakeholders and policy makers to discuss various issues examined in the report. Long-serving community leaders will share their experience on meeting the changing needs of the local community they serve and their insight into long-term service sustainability planning.

Other eminent guest speakers on forum discussion panel include:

-Baroness Sally Greengross OBE, President/CEO, International Longevity Centre

- Dr Yeow Poon, co-author of the report and Chair of Chinese Community Centre-Birmingham

- Ms Circle Steele, CEO, Wai Yin Society, Manchester

- Dr Karen Harrison-Dening, Head of Research and Evaluation, Dementia UK


This forum will take place in Committee Room G of the House of Lords between 6 to 8 pm.
