Ilford charity gets funding boost for south Asian community work
An Ilford charity that helps south Asian people access health and social care has been awarded �78,000 for its community work.
The Sikh Community Care Project in Argyle Road has received a double funding boost from the Big Lottery Fund and the City Bridge Trust.
The former is providing �45,000 to allow the charity’s staff to communicate with groups in south Asian languages about community services.
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.”
