Our Completed Projects
Projects we have worked on. Since foundation in 2020, The Aarogyam (UK) CIC has worked with experienced partners to support communities in the UK. COVID-19 pandemic affected badly, which is why throughout the years we have worked on a broad range of issues related to pandemic and lockdowns.
LEAD Project was a collaborative effort to work with children and parents for children aged between 2-16 years old.
When children are young, we help them by working with parents and carers with the specific aim of building the young person’s mental resilience to meet the ordinary demands of everyday life. Started from February 2020 until first national UK lockdown (8-weeks), We had been running a set of session for parents of children and young people. These days focus on supporting the mental health needs of children and parents.
The impact of chronic conditions on people’s lives and services in the UK is of growing concern. Long- term limiting illness in the UK accounting for a large proportion of unnecessary emergency admissions to hospital and GP appointments. Aarogyam walk-in Clinic was proposed as a multi- disciplinary team of expert integrative therapies (including Yoga therapy, Ayurveda, Physiotherapy, Holistic Counselling) helping patients manage their long-term conditions in community settings.
Started from Early 2019 to until March 23, 2020; we supported 98 patients through our different programs and initiatives.
Vedic Chants Group
Vedic chanting expects good memory and attention. The whole of Vedic lore was passed on from generations in an oral tradition without the aid of writing until recent times. Memory capacities were utilized to maximum extent and the entire lot of mantras was kept by rote. As it is known by experience and observation that chanting improves memory and attention this study has been taken to examine the facts by research.
Community based open chanting group was set up for people to come and join together to learn basics of chants, Sanskrit pronunciation and work in group to practice together. every Saturday for 12-weeks; 48 people joined and continued self practice at home.
