South Asian Women Self Management Project

by Nari Kallyan Shangho (NKS)

Conditions, Support Network, Activity

NKS has developed and implemented a tailored programme to support the South Asian communities within the family setting. The programme is supporting unpaid carers as well as individuals living with long term health conditions to better manage the impact that the condition has on individuals and their families. This is being done by providing one to one support sessions to individuals in the home and sessions with family carers in the home.

The holistic approach is being used to develop the support programme where the whole family is being supported, as a person with long term health condition living with a family impacts everyone at home. The extended family system in the South Asian communities demands the involvement of the extended family, hence, a support group has been developed around the needs of carers to link them to other families in similar circumstances.
