VISION


Welcome to a new future

Our vision is to best represent the needs and aspirations of British Sikhs through a single unbiased platform. This will include accessible support for initiatives, consultancy and public resources, such as excellence of work by groups and individuals.

For our formidable vision to become a reality, we will be addressing a number of topical areas affecting the UK Sikh community. We will be asking the right questions, presenting the right answers and engaging with all parties in a broad variety of arenas. As a new organisation we intend to be different. We are working to identify both progressive ideas and gaps in the Sikh community. These already include welfare, social and political arenas. Our unique charity constitution and structure will enable a strategic and unbiased operation, delivering a rich and valuable resource for broader society. A transparent and apolitical approach will embrace the core ethics and diversity of our community.

Planning today for a better tomorrow

We are already working to provide pathways and projects for partnerships, development and representation. Our collaborations will forge relationships with like-minded organisations and help strengthen our ideas and vision. Our work will facilitate community cohesion and growth. The net result of our work shall be a stronger profile of Sikh heritage and activity in society.

So what’s really different?

Sikh Assembly can only progress this groundbreaking vision through mutually beneficial participation and membership. As well as spearheading a broad range of strategic projects, we welcome project proposals from the broader membership across all UK concerns and sectors. We openly seek active members who share our vision to take part, lead and share best practice and develop the community’s footprint within broader society. There is a place for you whether you want to simply support our areas of work, suggest or lead on an idea, lobby to government, or offer patronage and sponsorship.

There’s so much more

We hope you’ll agree that it is time for a Sikh platform everyone can trust, learn from and celebrate. Help us advance the Sikh community profile and have your say. Joining our membership means that we can carry out this hugely important mission. We are planning today for the future, and invite you to join us before and beyond our official launch in early 2020. To know more about this hugely significant and exciting national venture, please contact us.

PROJECTS

INITIATIVE

Career Advice & Mentoring

Purpose

Critically, we will help members of the UK’s Sikh workforce across common issues. We will help those who seek to break into a particular sector, require coaching to progress their career, acquire leadership skills, or looking for a career change.

INITIATIVE

Disability Discussions

Purpose
To raise awareness of the issues around disability within the Sikh community.

Outline
Sikh Assembly will be hosting a Disability Conference in 2020/21 supported by the Asian Disability Network. People from minority groups experience disability differently than by the wider population. For far too long, disability has carried a greater sense of negative stigma and discrimination within Asian communities, and this needs to change. The aim will be to educate, challenge perceptions and change attitudes, helping to inspire the next generation for a more inclusive world. We will explore how disability is navigated within ethnic, cultural and religious identities. The Asian Disability Network is an online platform providing information and support.
