Who We Are

LINK COMMUNITY CENTRE

is a volunteer community group that provides information, advice, and guidance relating to welfare benefits, housing, education, employment, or community integration, to the minority communities in the UK, mobilizing resources, coordinating the efforts of different agencies, and building programs to the welfare of individuals or groups to meet their needs.

We are delighted to have received support from Luton Rising via their Community Recovery Fund managed by the Bedfordshire and Luton Community Foundation (BLCF). Thanks to this grant we are now able to continue our work with the minority community from East of Europe.
