6 Soho Rd,
Nishkam Sikh Rogi Aasra (Chaplaincy Service)
NCA have an allegiance to the local and wider community, as such endeavour to work with partners and organisations to ensure that “Sarbat Da Bhalla” “The Wellbeing and Welfare of All” is sustained through providing this care to all God’s creation through Sikh Rogi Aasra (Sikh Chaplaincy).
The definition of ‘Sikh Rogi Aasra’ –
Sikh is a disciple of the True Guru, and a carer providing support for all. Rogi is a person who is ill. Aasra is to provide support and care.
WE ARE COMPASSIONATE ABOUT THE COMMUNITY
THIS IS A FREE, IMPARTIAL AND CONFIDENTIAL SERVICE, TO BE THERE IN A TIME OF NEED TO PROVIDE:
-SIKH ROGI AASRA (CHAPLAINCY SERVICES)
-A Listening Ear
-End of Life Care and Support
-To conduct a prayer & funeral service
-Bereavement Care and Support
-Healing and Good Health through prayer
-Networking with other major organisations
Partnering and working with the NHS Trusts, Hospices, West Midlands Police, Universities and UK Sikh Chaplaincy Group, is a natural activity for us because we believe that one should always maintain a high regard for serving humanity. Our Dharam (way of life or faith) informs us that we must work for the wellbeing and welfare of all (Sarbat Da Bhalla) and this is the cornerstone of a social justice system that is underpinned by equalitarian not elitist ideologies.
TEAM AND VOLUNTEERS
GNNSJ (Guru Nanak Nishkam Sewak Jatha) – The Sikh GURUDWARA (a sikh place of worship), our parent organisation and the NCA has supported and invested in the spiritual regeneration throughout the West Midlands and globally. In our humble opinion, this has played an instrumental role in moulding and creating vibrant volunteers, through naam (prayer) and sewa (selfless service) the key elements into achieving the Queens’s Award 2010. We are keen to continue collaborative working with all partners.
The Nishkam Centre has co-ordinated, recruited and trained 39 committed volunteers. We value and support them in the service and outreach work they deliver to the community in need. We will continue to recruit and train new volunteers allowing them to improve their skills and knowledge through Life Long Learning and Development, providing them with Preparation for Chaplaincy from a Faith Perspective and Religious Education Level 2 and Chaplaincy and Religious Worship Level 3 training and an opportunity to serve the community.
THE CHAPLAINCY COMMUNITY HUB
The Chaplaincy Community Hub has been created in the centre to support and give advice to the local community. This FREE, IMPARTIAL AND CONFIDENTIAL SERVICE can be accessed via email, telephone or the reception desk at the centre.
Through training we have developed and trained the vital requirements to have individual faith chaplains in place for our service users, clients and staff. For more information about the training and to train in Faith Chaplaincy and Religious Worship at Level 3 click here.
The faith chaplains can exercise culture sensitivity.
Serving all faith and non-faith communities.
This is a holistic service for the body, mind and soul.
