About us

The Indochinese Community Centre exists to serve people of Indochinese origin, their family and friends, resident in southeast London with services to the community in a supportive atmosphere. Here’s some information about our history and our people. 

Our history

The process of establishing the London Chinese Community School (formerly known as the Indo-Chinese Refugee Chinese school) began in 1978 when the British government allowed Indo-Chinese refugees to settle in this country. Indo-Chinese refugees flooded into Britain up until 1982.

Our people

The Centre was founded by Mr Van Cuong Truong and his wife, who came to Britain as refugees in 1979. Both love Britain and being British citizens, but they also celebrate their Indochinese culture!
