The concept of an Anglo-Indian Association originated in 1995 when a group of Anglo Indians established a Steering Committee. Their purpose was to develop a framework which would give rise to creation of an Anglo Indian Association of NSW (AIANSW) which would represent interests of the Anglo Indian Community, principally in NSW but also with a view to assisting Anglo Indians in need elsewhere. Accordingly, the AIANSW was incorporated on October 20 1995 to preserve and perpetuate Anglo Indian culture.
Through its operations, the AIANSW will promote and project aspects of Anglo Indian culture and heritage that engender Anglo Indian community pride in its ancestry and history.
