Dimsum is read predominantly in the UK, and has a wide following In the English speaking Chinese diaspora. It reaches people of all ages and ethnic backgrounds, covering issues such as family, work, cultural events and community.

More than just a website, Dimsum encourages debate and interaction. We see it as a meeting place open all hours for likeminded people to read and discuss business, cultural, social and political issues. Dimsum has also been pivotal in the development of Chinese voice and identity in British culture and politics by helping to lead the campaign and disseminate information about the Chinese scapegoating during the 2001 Foot and Mouth outbreak. We also partnered on a number of events, including the first British Chinese Film Festival, in which we partnered with the Scotland-China Association.

Dimsum currently holds a number of networking events for the British Chinese community to provide opportunity to meet and strengthen ties within the community. These regularly attract over 200 people and around 30 organisations from corporate and community sectors.

Dimsum has a focus on Chinese and the South East Asian community in the UK, but we also welcome those from the wider community with an interest in Chinese and South East Asian topics. Our readership also extends to the English speaking Chinese diaspora, in countries such as USA, Canada, New Zealand, Australia and Singapore as well as within China and Hong Kong itself.
