Founder of the Sikh Helpline, Giani Sukha Singh humbly requests: “We need the support of the local communities to help us keep up with the increasing demand of calls. Every call matters and a missed call may be the only attempt someone makes for help. It is crucial that every call is answered. The Sikh Helpline handles hundreds of calls each month on issues ranging from grooming, domestic abuse through to racism and substance addiction. Due to cultural barriers and protection of ‘honour’ within the local community, such victims suffer in silence. We want people to call for help and not suffer in silence.” With an understanding of these cultural issues and barriers, the Sikh Helpline offers a support network for these victims. Your fundraising is crucial to support the ongoing service of the helpline by ensuring we have the funds to continue to resource the helpline. We are looking into initiatives to be able to provide more services with the view to tackling issues before they arise, through prevention methods such as educational workshops and media campaigns".
