About Us

Our Aim

The Lewisham Irish Community Centre is a registered charity established to relieve poverty, sickness, and distress; and to welcome people of all ages to experience and learn about Irish culture and heritage. We extend our hospitality to the many people from diverse and cultural backgrounds that live in the borough and to people from surrounding areas.

Funders and Supporters

The main sources of funding are London Borough of Lewisham and the Irish Government’s Emigrant Support Programme. Further income is generated through hall hire, social events, membership fees and other fundraising activities.

We also rely heavily on donations from supporters. Please consider supporting our work.
