An Ilford charity that helps south Asian people access health and social care has been awarded �78,000 for its community work.

Staff will deliver presentations on major health care concerns.
Manager Jasbir Sanger said: “We will be going to all community groups if they want us to give talks and presentations and people will have a better understanding of how to access social care for themselves.”
