COVID-19 Community Support Group

We set up COVID-19 Community Support Group to tackle unprecedented challenges and uncertainty faced by the Gurkha Nepalese communities in and around the boroughs of London.

During COVID-19 pandemic outbreak, we ramped up our remote, round-the-clock outreach services to provide hundreds of Gurkha veterans, wives, widows and adult children with relevant advice, information and practical support in accessing health, welfare and benefits. 

Throughout the national lockdown, we have been supporting the elderly and the most vulnerable who were shielding in prescription requests and pick-ups as well as in shopping and delivery of essential food items.

In collaboration with relevant agencies, we also provided bereaved partners and families with information and support in reporting deaths to relevant departments, arranging funerals and applying for funeral grants as appropriate.
