Lewisham Irish Community Centre (LICC) is an organisation with an enduring passion for transforming the lives of the people it works with.
We support the need of Irish, Irish descents and people from the Irish Traveller community. Enabling people to build resilience, retain independence, live fulfilled lives and access the right kind of support when required. We have offered this support since our formation in 1992.
As we have grown and become more involved in our local community, we have developed and changed our services to meet their needs. While retaining the core services for our older and vulnerable Irish Community, we offer a broad range of services and activities to local families, young people, the older BAME Communities, local businesses, voluntary sector groups and residents.
We are a registered charity (1014852 – Lewisham Irish Community Centre) and a company limited by guarantee (0272450).
As a charity, we have a Trustee Board, referred to in our governing document as the ‘Management Committee’. Our current board is made up of 6 individuals; a mix of centre users and externals. As a Management Committee member, you will be a Trustee of the charity as well as a Director of the company.
As we continue to modernise and evolve as an organisation, we are seeking up to four new Trustees to join our board and help us fulfill our ambitious strategic plan which we will use to guide our development until 2024. Applicants don’t need to be Irish or come from an Irish heritage but they should share our passion to deliver for the people of Lewisham.
Our plan sets out the following Vision, Mission and Strategic Priorities –
A confident empowered Irish community
An engaged Community Centre enriching lives by providing accessible services and facilities to the local community
We will achieve our Vision by focusing on four key areas of delivery and growth
- Welfare of the Irish Community
- Keeping our Community Connected
- Rebuilding and Sustainability Post-COVID
