Sikh Sanjog believe working in partnership with other voluntary and statutory organisations is an effective means of enabling Sikh, and other ethnically and culturally diverse women and their families, to access integrated services and employment.
We continue to research innovative ways to offer new services and meet new needs in a cost effective way. Where others are already equipped to provide what is required, we will outsource services such as training. Our priority is to identify needs and then deliver tailored programmes to meet them, through the best possible service providers.
We are committed to retaining our identity and sensitivity to our local community, in order to encourage and foster integration and inclusion within our broader society. Our stakeholders will view our organisation as providing a crucial link to vital mainstream services. We aim to deliver our services in sensitive and pro-active ways that will celebrate different cultures, not challenge them. In pursuit of our goals, we treat stakeholders, users and the community with the utmost respect. We endeavour to provide British society with an educated insight into the Sikh way of life while also protecting the identities of our users.
Sikh Sanjog aspire to maintain our reputation in the voluntary, social and educational sectors for developing and delivering effective and confidential services dedicated to the promotion of Sikh cultural values within the broader Scottish society.
