Vidya Jyoti UK
In the UK, Vidya Jyoti have partnered with Community ConneX Ltd which is an established and leading West London-based health and social care organisation serving the whole community.
Community ConneX help people to live healthier, happier, and more independent lives. We do this by supporting individuals and families in their daily lives, providing them with opportunities to engage with others, make their voices heard, develop new skills, and grow.
Vidya Jyoti offers regular activity and entertainment days, where individuals with any disability who are service users of Community ConneX and People Connex can attend. Vidya Jyoti’s dedicated volunteers provide the food and entertainment/activities at these events free of cost. We believe in giving our time and attention to individuals with any disability so that they feel loved, valued and respected.
We believe that social inclusion and removing loneliness is a very important way of serving people with disabilities.Dr Pamela Kaushal is also providing her skills and expertise in mental health, by offering group sessions for those with disabilities, who require information or informal support with mental health issues.
Individuals are encouraged to come and talk about their mental health in a group setting. Dr Kaushal delivers talks to service users and their carers from Community ConneX regularly, at events arrange by the organisation.
Every Easter and Christmas Vidya Jyoti arranges gifts for two charitable organisations in Buckinghamshire, 1. Young Carers Bucks (provide support to children and young adults who are in a caring role) 2. Wycombe Women’s refuge (provide support and shelter for women who are victims of domestic abuse).
