Community Organisations


Community organisations and business associations are the lifeblood of the Chinese community and Chinatown.

Registered charities, the Wai Yin Chinese Women Association (1988), which was founded by Amy Lai, Anne Yuen, Junita Yau, Sylvia Howe and Josephine Chan and grew up under the direction of Sylvia Sham, and the Manchester Chinese Centre (2005) which was founded by Jenny Wong, providing a range of community services for those Chinese living in the Greater Manchester area.

Tung Sing (1984) is a Manchester housing association established by John Cai to give Chinese people access to good housing. There are  Tung Sing housing projects across the city of Manchester. Tung Sing is the largest organisation of its kind in Europe.

There are also some organisations catering for specific cultural groups, such as the Vietnamese Chinese Society and the Manchester Oriental Organisations Alliance (MOOA), which works to create harmony between oriental and British people.

The Federation of Chinese Associations of Manchester (1992) in Newton Street has a membership of many different businesses and organisations. Led by Stuart Yip and Tyze Kai Li, MBE, the FCAM most notably fundraise for and organise the annual Chinese New Year Festival in Manchester's Chinatown.

A new organisation, the Chinatown Action Group (2010), was set up by Kin Cheng, Warren Yeung, Harry Yeung, Jenny Wong and Ed Duguid to deal with issues affecting businesses in Chinatown and to lobby the council to help keep Chinatown clean and attractive for both residents and visitors.
