Afghanistan and Central Asian Association - Strategic Development Volunteer

Details of the Charity:

The Afghanistan and Central Asian Association (ACAA) was founded in 2000 to support vulnerable refugees and migrants, living in some of the most disadvantaged and deprived areas of London, to improve their wellbeing, independence, aspirations and integration. We provide a wide range of social, cultural, and educational services and place a heavy focus on gender equity within the displaced communities. We aim to break down language and cultural barriers and give our community a voice and address their needs. Our work is underpinned by a community development ethos centred on addressing individual needs and circumstances. Although our main area of support is refugee families, our activities are open to all as part of our long-standing integration agenda.
