Les Maliens du Royaume-Uni: Malian Community in London (2016)

Malians have one the smallest communities in the UK and certainly in London. Many of the Bambara and French speaking Malians are dispersed all over London and have effective community development organisations in London such as the ‘Conseil des Maliens du Royaume-Uni’ (Malian Community Council-UK) and the Community of Malian Refugees in the UK along with the Mali Development Group in Oxford. Some Malians live in Peckham, Hackney and near Edgware Road. More info is available from the groups mentioned below.

Le Conseil des Maliens de l’Exterieur


Le Conseil des Maliens de l’Exterieur est un organe à caractère associatif, apolitique, laïc et non discriminatoire et à but non lucratif.

Facebook: /Conseil-des-Maliens | Phone 1: 078 68 88 11 90 | Phone 2: 075 52 22 52 28 | Email 1: info@conseilmalienru.org | Email 2: info@maliancounciluk.org | President: Aboubacar Coulibaly

This non-profit organisation is the leading body for Malians in the UK assisting Malians to overcome the problems of integration and social inclusion. Life in the UK and London is very different linguistically, culturally and weather wise compared to back home and this organisation serves a very good purpose.

Le Conseil des Maliens du Royaume-Uni a pour but de:
– représenter les Maliens auprès des Instances et Institutions Nationales du Mali;
– rassembler tous les ressortissants maliens du R.U. sans distinction d’origine régionale, ethnique, religieuse, sociale, de sexe ou de profession;
– promouvoir l’union et la solidarité entre les Maliens du R.U.;
– aider les Maliens à surmonter les problèmes d’intégration et d’insertion sociale;
– susciter la contribution des Maliens au developpement économique, social, environnemental, culturel et sportifl du Mali;
– promouvoir la paix et l’intégration entre les communautés.

  1. Hello,
    I noticed that in the blog that talks about the Malian community in London it is mentioned that some of the community is based in Peckham, Hackney, and Edgware Road. With respect to Edgware Road, is there a particular business or organization that is affiliated with the Malian community in that area? How is it known that Malians reside there? I also noticed in a separate blog post, the majority of Malians are in South/Southeast London. Are there any organizations affiliated with the community in any of the South London boroughs? If you could answer these questions for me, I would appreciate it!
