Who we are

Who we are

Sikh Welfare &
Awareness Team

We are a charitable organisation based in West London, our primary function is to unite and transform financially disadvantaged communities by focusing on projects which make a difference to people’s lives in the short term and improve their prospects in the long term.

Founded in 2008

Our first project being a youth club offering regular workshops on substance awareness, informal talks on the Sikh and other faiths and encouraging the children to engage in group discussions and debates on current issues they are facing today such as gang culture, drug addiction, and alcohol abuse.

In 2009 we discovered over 200 men sleeping rough on the streets of Southall which then established our Homeless Project where we go out to different areas of the UK to feed the less fortunate. In between this we have established many more projects.

Our vision

“We have a vision where every person we meet knows they are loved and valued, lives safely, with respect, faith, hope and care for themselves and others, achieving their full potential and positively contributing to and transforming their communities”.

We work on the ethos of Guru Nanak Dev Ji’s teachings who was the first Guru of the Sikhs of:

Naam Japna, remembering God.
Kirat Karni, earning an honest living.
Vand Kay Shako; selflessly serving others, sharing income and resources
