Sahara began in 2019 as an initiative aiming to reach isolated members of the South Asian community through the provision of a free befriending service.
Since then, we have expanded to offer:
• Face-to-face and telephone befriending
• Accessible yoga classes
• Monthly social gatherings
• Meal deliveries
• Information, advice and advocacy
As Sahara grows, we want to become stronger and more sustainable to support the needs of older South Asian people in Medway and across the UK.
We are looking for Trustees to join our Board as we begin the process of registering Sahara as a charity, allowing us to secure funding and expand our projects.
We're looking for people that have an in-depth understanding of issues affecting older people, particularly older South Asian people in the UK.
