Taraki and COVID-19

Taraki works with Punjabi communities to create spaces where all individuals can access mental health awareness, education, and support to better care for themselves and one-another. They aim to reshape approaches to mental health.

Shuranjeet Singh, founder, tells us about how funding from the NSUN COVID-19 grant enabled Taraki to to continue their groups and engage further members of Punjabi communities in conversations about mental health through Zoom. They’ve also created social media assets, reports, posters, and more with a Canva subscription to enable new work with graphic design.

Kuljit Brogal, LGBTQ+ Support Group Facilitator, speaks to us about how they’ve been able to get their website going, aiming to be a one-stop shop for LGBTQ+ Punjabi people to connect with each other. They’re also now aiming to extend some groups beyond London. You can find out more about Taraki at www.taraki.co.uk
