CLAUK Coalition of Latin Americans in the UK
Voicing the collective interest of the Latin American Community in the UK in mainly three fronts:
Recognition: we campaign for the official recognition of Latin Americans as an ethnic minority in London and the UK. We also work for the inclusion of the category “Latin American” in ethnic monitoring and Census gathering.
Health: Latin Americans lack of access to health services is worrisome: 1 in 5 are not registered with a GP, and only 4 out of 10 have been to a dentist in the UK. We work to improve Latin Americans’ access to health.
Labour rights: The lack of regulations of the cleaning and catering sectors mean that many Latin Americans experience extremely poor working conditions.
CLAUK campaign to improve Latin Americans’ access to labour rights.
Services: Legal Advise, Education, Health, Victims of Violence, Social and Cultural Projects
