The Chinese Information and Advice Centre (CIAC) is a registered charity (Reg No. 800646) and social enterprise that offers free information, advice and support to disadvantaged Chinese people living in the United Kingdom.
CIAC is not only about providing benefit advice; We are also keen to help people facing immigration issues, women and children, victims of domestic violence, asylum seekers and refugees, and also homeless people.
CIAC is a registered charity, and without resources, the organisation could not function. Apart from the financial matters, we actively seek to work with other organisations in pursuit of common goals; most importantly, we need volunteers to carry out our many projects.
We host monthly Home Office drop-in surgeries at our centre for the community. Friendly officers from the Home Office will meet the local community and provide information regarding immigration applications and voluntary return.
Nominations are now open to honour an outstanding woman whose volunteer work and effort has positive impact on the Chinese community.
