Home to the London Irish Centre in the leafy Camden Square, lies the heart of the Irish Community in London. In 1955, the London Irish Centre Charity opened its door to newly arrived Irish Immigrants, in search of different jobs and opportunities. Initially providing accommodation and welfare, the centre quickly became an important social and cultural venue.

The London Irish Centre Charity works in three key areas of Care, Culture and Community, understanding the changing needs of the Irish community in London. As the largest Irish welfare charity in Britian and the largest Irish community centre outside of Ireland, helping *** a year. 

Care is the core of our work and we support the most vulnerable members of our community right across London. This includes advice services and crisis assistance, dedicated outreach, advocates and case workers for older Irish people, day services with nutritious meals, accessible social groups and activities to combat loneliness, the provision of small crisis grants, family tracing and assistance in returning to Ireland.

In addition to providing crucial welfare services, the London Irish Centre is a cultural hub, proudly supporting Irish arts, music and dance. We manage London's leading Irish culture programme, welcoming over 20,000 people every year. We offer space and assistance to over 400 Irish community events and provide support and advice to a wide mix of Irish artists and culture organisations. 

The community will always be at the heart of the charity, we offer a warm and welcoming connection to a vibrant and supportive Irish community. We strive to do this through our online networks, our events programme, our community centre and through our volunteering and befriending opportunities.
