Wai Yin Society

Wai Yin Society has been supporting, empowering and working in partnership with Chinese individuals and families since 1988, when we were founded by a group of community-minded Chinese women. Since then, Wai Yin has become one of the largest BME community centres in the UK, sustaining its operations through commissions and contracts with mainstream organisations. As the Society has grown, we have developed a range of employment, education and community services for Chinese men and women and for other ethnic minority groups, including Somali, Pakistani, Bangladeshi, Indian and many European nationalities. The Society aims to challenge all forms of discrimination and social exclusion through the provision of diverse and reactive services, delivered by a team of qualified social workers, nurses and other professionals.

Children's project, youth project, women and parenting project, Adult Learning, Mental Health project and Elderly project Day centre for older people is available too. Luncheon club, meals-on-wheels.

Activities include luncheon club, Mandarin classes, pamper sessions, carers corner, outdoor activities, singing class, home visits, hospital visits and interpreting service.
