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 well being, 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.
