Through the provision of high-quality services, we strive to improve the wellbeing of the Irish community across North West London and beyond. We do this by promoting opportunity, social integration, independence and equality.
BIAS was set up in 1978 as a response to the welfare needs of the Irish community, the largest immigrant community in London. Our aim is to work towards improving the quality of life of Irish people and people of Irish heritage.
Our Welfare and Advocacy Service supports Irish people of all ages. We provide a service that informs our clients of their rights and welfare entitlements to ensure the best quality of life possible.
Our Active Ageing project supports older Irish people to extend the quality of life for people as they age and continue to participate in the community.
