The Afghanistan and Central Asian Association works with Afghans and Central Asians living away from their homeland, providing the support, skills and knowledge to live and prosper in the UK.

Our services include English language classes, employment workshops, a women’s support group, a Saturday school and homework club, youth and family support services, drop-in and telephone advice, volunteer placements, and cultural and social events. The organisation also visits individuals and families in detention.

In Afghanistan, we are developing citizens advice centres in Kabul and Pul-e-Khumri after a successful pilot project ran from 2013 to 2016 offering free, impartial and confidential advice, information, support and legal aid on issues including education, employment and domestic violence.
