Association of Blind Asians (ABA) Leeds is thrilled to announce the launch of their new project in partnership with Live Well Leeds: AASRA – Mental Health & Wellbeing Support for Unpaid Carers in BAME Communities.  AASRA, meaning “Shelter,” is an empowering initiative designed to provide comprehensive support to unpaid carers from BAME communities in Leeds. Their dedicated team of multilingual BAME staff will be working tirelessly to engage, inform, advise, and support carers, ensuring they have access to the services they need.  The project aims to provide inclusive, accessible, and person-centered support services, collaborating with various community and statutory organizations. Together, we can improve the lives of unpaid carers in Leeds. The ranges of service and support available includes:

  • Engaging Group Activities: Join us for engaging group sessions where we run a range of activities, including arts, exercise, and valuable opportunities to interact, build relationships, and find peer support.
  • Personalized 1-2-1 support: Our caring team offers individualized support tailored to your needs, ensuring you receive the assistance you require.
  • Advocacy support: We assist you with appointments, form filling, and effective communication, ensuring your voice is heard.
  • Information, advice and support: Access multilingual information and guidance on a range of topics, including benefits and financial advice, form filling, wellbeing strategies, advice on carers allowance and assessment, and more.
  • Signposting and partnerships: Benefit from our strong network of partnerships with statutory and voluntary organizations in Leeds, ensuring all available support options are accessible to you.
