Our History

Our foundation goes back to the early 1970s following the migration of the Assamese diaspora in the 1960s and 1970s. It started with a small group of migrant Assamese who arrived before and after the 70s’. Over the past 50+ years, it has continued to grow and change. With 90+ registered members, this is one of the largest Assamese associations in the UK.
