ICA is proud to be funded by Big Lottery to deliver this ambitious 3 year project.  REALISING EFFECTIVE COMMUNITY will facilitate social change through a variety of recreational and support activities.

 

 

Our OBJECTIVES are:

  • To develop a strong Chinese community in Islington, and in London;
  • To promote community harmony (particularly, integration between Mandarin-speaking Chinese and Cantonese-speaking Chinese);
  • To improve the quality of life and opportunities for those, in particular the Chinese community, in Islington and its environs;
  • To facilitate social change, by consistently providing outstanding services through partnerships with statutory, voluntary, and business groups.

Here are our target OUTCOMES:

  • Intervene early to challenges/issues and be proactively receptive to social learning and integration;
  • Facilitate service users to understand better civic rights and responsibilities, increase their independence and confidence with improved language, social and employment skills;
  • Enable service users to take a lead, develop volunteers’ engagement, and increase ICA’s service user numbers;
  • Provide a platform for users to build happier and stronger relationship within the community and bring about an effective community through building bridges between Chinese, Black, Asian, Minority Ethnic, Refugee and wider communities.

Examples of our REALISING EFFECTIVE COMMUNITY activities:

Karaoke friendly contest; Table Tennis tournament; Dragon Boat race team building; Improving health and fitness through Tai Chi and qigong; Smart Phone class for the elderly; partnering and volunteering with other voluntary communities and business groups in providing free breakfasts, free meals, winter shelter and relief works to those in need.

同心攜手共建和諧社區

本項目旨在促進社區和諧,配合社會變化,通過各種活動提供優質高效服務,例如:舉辦卡拉OK友誼賽;乒乓球比賽;划龍船比賽;太極班;使用流動電話基本班;與其他志願團體商業機構合夥一起向有需要的人提供免費早餐、免費食品、冬季住宿和救災工程等。

這是一個由彩票基金資助的為期三年的項目。

依士靈頓華人協會旨在打破溝通障礙,促進社區和諧(特別是說普通話的中國人和講廣東話的中國人之間更緊密的整合),為依士靈頓華人社區、倫敦及其周邊地區的人提高和改善生活質量並提供機會。

我們期望取得的成果:

首先,我們積極主動參與社區探研並鼓勵服務對象接受社區學習和融合,儘早介入問題和挑戰。

其次,我們幫助服務用戶了解公民權利和責任,通過提高語言能力,社交人際關係和就業技能以增強他們的信心和獨立自主性。

第三,我們會鼓勵會員們發揮領導才能,推動義工參與,並增加服務用戶量。最後,我們將為用戶提供平台,讓會員們之間在本社區內建立愉快關係和強大團隊,並在華人社區,黑人、亞洲、少數民族等族群團體,難民組織和英國主流社會之間,建立橋樑作用以實現和諧的社區。
