Sikh Council UK is pleased to confirm that the Home Office has announced that it will provide the Sikh Council UK with a grant of £60K to provide assistance to destitute, trafficked and vulnerable people from North India if they wish to voluntarily return back home. The Council is waiting on a formal confirmation and expects the scheme to commence sometime in November when full details will be advertised in the Panjabi/Sikh media.

It is worth noting that the Immigration service already holds surgeries in 10 Gurdwaras in England for those people who may wish to return on a voluntary basis and the widespread media coverage relating to destitute Panjabis sleeping rough and the sexual exploitation of vulnerable women.
