Lambeth Asian Centre

LAC work tirelessly to ensure the highest standard of service provision for older people and carers in the Streatham area

Lambeth Asian Centre is a day centre for older Asian people in Streatham offering help, support and activities to promote their independence, health and well-being. It reaches out for the lonely and vulnerable people who live in this area.

Lambeth Asian Centre was started on 28th of September 1998, initially the centre didn’t receive any funding. But the Chair Raj Acharya and the previous management committee decided to contribute £10.00 pounds every week. And with this help they were able to run the centre.

In the year 2002 Streatham Darby and Joan Club generously welcomed us to their building. During 2004 Lambeth Asian Centre bid for Council funding and LAC and Streatham Darby and Joan Club decided to work in partnership. And later Make a Difference Black Afro Caribbean group also joined us. At present all the groups are running with the help of Council funding. Every year we have an A.G. M and elect new officers .

The centre offers a number of activities for our members and users including:

  • Luncheon Club,
  • Welfare and Housing Benefit,
  • Religious Events,
  • Sewing Classes,
  • English Classes,
  • Computer Classes,
  • Day trips and Holidays.

We invite you to come and join us in any or all of these activities and make your later life enjoyable.

We will work tirelessly to ensure the highest standard of service provision for older people and carers in our community. Above all else we will continue to listen to our members, older people and carers to ensure that we provide services which promote independence, improve health & well-being and make life a more enjoyable and rewarding experience.

We will continue to keep you updated on our exciting developments.
