Some of our Beneficiaries have recently celebrated Eid, an important religious holiday that marks the end of 29 or 30 days of dawn-to-sunset fasting, as part of the Islamic holy month of fasting.
A key part of our project is to provide bespoke support for our Beneficiaries including a focus on wellbeing, values and beliefs. Our Personal Development Coordinators wanted to ensure that Beneficiaries hoping to celebrate Eid were able to do so, despite their current circumstances. It was agreed the best approach was to prepare and deliver some gift bags, each filled with food, sanitary items, and information leaflets. The bags were very well received by our Beneficiaries.
A number of our Beneficiaries are from BME backgrounds, and we work with our contracted Partner, AWAAZ, to ensure that culturally specific support is provided.
