Nani Ji

We are really delighted to have our Nani Ji project which will continue until June 2021!

Nani Ji is funded by The National Lottery Community Fund and the UK Government and aims to encourage older Asian women to come out of their homes and make new friends, develop skills and have new experiences. Sadly Covid-19 has stopped us from meeting together, but we have continued to keep in touch with all those who want us to and if you are interested in being part of a WhatsApp Group or kept in regular phone contact please get in touch.

The project was launched on 17th January and we were amazed that 43 older women came along and shared their ideas about things they would like to do. These ranged from exercise and swimming to sewing and trips. Following the huge success of the launch, we ran Nani Tea on Thursday afternoons at 1pm, with a series of taster sessions to enable us to plan activities that will be enjoyable.

Do you know an older Asian women who would benefit from a chance to meet together with some new (and old) friends? If they live in the BD3/BD2 area why not bring them along to our Thursday afternoon session? You are welcome to stay with them to ensure they feel comfortable.

We delivered Explore Together - a chance for older people to get together with some nursery children to discover the joy of intergenerational relationships! It was an opportunity to bring people together who would not normally have that chance. It allowed older people to pass on their skills and knowledge and young children to discover new activities. Each week the bond between the participants grows stronger. The older people were encouraged by the energy and enthusiasm of the nursery children and each one made a new friend.
