The British Chinese Project aims to empower the UK Chinese community, making them aware of their democratic rights and responsibilities, whilst ensuring the needs and interests of the community are heard at a political level.
The UK Chinese community has been politically isolated for too long. The British Chinese Project recognises a need for greater representation of Chinese people at all levels of government and society. The Chinese community is now the third largest ethnic minority group in the UK, and the fastest growing – yet, our influence on policy-making decisions is almost non-existent.
