The Chinese Community Development Partnership (CCDP) is a company limited by guarantee and a recognised Scottish charity. It is the central point of contact and source of information between the Chinese community and the local authorities, public bodies and voluntary organisations. The project is primarily funded by the Glasgow City Council (from the Integrated Grant Fund) and donations (from member organisations and individual members).


CCDP was established in 1994 as a direct result of the close attention given by the then Race Equality Sub-committee of the Strathclyde Regional Council to the needs of the Chinese community.

Until then, there had been a lack of a central point of contact for the Chinese community in Glasgow. This created difficulties for the public service providers dealing with the Chinese as well as for members of the community requiring public services. The establishment of CCDP provided the central point of contact and it has proved to be an effective link between the service providers and the Chinese community.


CCDP is an umbrella body. Under this umbrella are 14 Chinese organisations including the Chinese School, the Chinese Christian Church, the Kat O Buddhist Association, the Chinese Women’s Association, the Wing Hong Elderly Centre, and the Chinese Parents’ Association.

In 2008, we expanded our membership to include not only organisations but also individual members.


Our aims are to advance the education of the public, in particular, the Chinese community, in all aspects of Chinese culture and language; to preserve and protect the health and well-being of the Chinese community; and to promote racial harmony.
