Many older people from ethnic minority backgrounds feel they have no one to turn to for support.


Sahara is an award-winning community initiative based in Medway, Kent UK. We are dedicated to helping South Asian people make the most of later life. We provide free social events, exercise classes, day trips, health workshops, information and more.


With the exception of Gal Baat - our monthly social gathering that takes place on the first Saturday of the month - our activities and services are always changing based on what our service users tell us they want, the season, and the funding we're able to secure. Please get in touch or check out our social media pages to find out what's currently on.
