Milaap Day Centre supporting service users during the pandemic
Milaap Day Centre
During Small Charity Week KVA has been celebrating all the small charities in Kingston doing amazing things to support their communities.
One small charity that deserves highlighting during Small Charity Week is Milaap - a multicultural day centre working with older people from the Black and Minority Ethnic (BAME) community.
Like many of us, Milaap have been adapting to new ways of working during the pandemic and taken the plunge to deliver online activities enabling them to keep in touch with older people during the lockdown.
As a result, service users have been able to participate in activities such as yoga and coffee mornings using Zoom, and Milaap have worked with Superhighways to provide a number of tablets so those without can still join in.
