Happy Chinese

New Year 2018!

The Leeds Chinese Community Association is once again hosting a Chinese New Year Festival for the 2018 arrival of the “Year of the Dog.” This year’s event takes place on Sunday 18 February 2018 at Leeds Town Hall. The occasion promises to deliver a wide variety of Chinese experiences including Dancing, Music, Diabolo, Calligraphy, Martial Arts and Taekwondo; there will also be trade stands offering a variety of Chinese Food, Crafts, Beauty and Face Painting. Tickets on sale from 11:00 am and the workshops begin at 11:30 am. Many thanks in advance to all those who have already shown support for the event and we look forward to seeing them and everyone else on the day.



The Leeds Chinese Community Association Ltd (LCCA) was founded in 1995 as a charitable voluntary organisation. The LCCA is a registered charity (1095420) and incorporated as a limited company by guarantee in 2002 (Reg No. 4429268). The LCCA wholly owns and operates the Chinese Community Centre that provides facilities for social, cultural, recreational and educational activities for people of all ages - children, women, families and the elderly.

Over the past 12 years, the LCCA has steadily built a reputation among the Chinese community by providing services, which meet the expressed needs of the community in the areas of health, arts, culture, education, guidance & advice, language skills & support, social welfare and community facilities. The LCCA has also cultivated wide networks and worked collaboratively with local community groups, local businesses, the Leeds City Council, PrimaryCare Trusts and the local universities.

However, in 2006, the LCCA underwent critical organisational restructuring; the main aim being to foster collective action and working partnerships among the Chinese organisations operating in Leeds. Under the LCCA umbrella, six (6) Chinese voluntary/community groups now make up the LCCA.

The Association is comprised of the following member organisations:

1. Leeds Wah Kwong Chinese Association
2. Leeds Chinese Community School (Cantonese)
3. Leeds Yuk Ming Cantonese Operatic Art Centre
4. Leeds Chinese Community Association Social Club
5. Leeds Chinese Community Association Elderly Luncheon Club
6. Lion Dance Troupe


經過多次考驗我們得以發展到目前的規模並以服務當地華人團體為主要目標。其中我們要感謝協會的志願者,員工和讚助團體一直以來的全力支持。我們在保持協會既定的準則和宗旨的 同時,也在不斷地完善其服務和運作機制。

Our mission is to improve and enhance the lives of the local community, in particular people from Chinese origin, by providing a range of services and support through our volunteers and workers. Through the successes of our many challenges, we were able to grow and meet the needs of the Chinese community. This has been, in most part due to the enormous support provided from our volunteers, workers and financial backers. We look forward to the future whilst maintaining our focus, values and vision.

We strive to reach out to people, particularly in the Chinese community, who are disadvantaged or deprived through social isolation, economic poverty and racial discrimination

利茲華人協會主要宗旨是意欲促進和提高利茲及其周邊地區華人社群的健康及社會福利。這將涉及到諸如文化娛樂休閒、社會活動的獎勵和支持、各個年齡階層的教育和就業等等方面。在利茲市政廳、各慈善信託機構、贊助者以及其他籌措方式所提供的社會基金的幫助下, 我們將通過提供信息、建議及舉辦一系列相關活動等方式來達到我們的目的。而我們的另一項計劃是向那些特別是華人社區中因社會孤立、經濟困難以及種族歧視而造成的缺乏教育的弱勢群體伸出援助之手。
