Our Mission

The South Asian Heritage Trust seeks to elevate the prominence of British South Asian history and heritage in the UK through education, arts, culture, celebration and commemoration.

Our mission is to deepen people’s understanding of the rich and diverse contributions of South Asian communities to British society, promote intercultural dialogue, and foster greater social cohesion among communities.

The trust aims to achieve the following objectives:

  1. Develop and deliver educational program kits for schools. 
  2. Organize and showcase arts and cultural events. 
  3. Commemorate and celebrate key historical events.
  4. Collaborate with other organizations, institutions, and individuals.

By pursuing these objectives, the South Asian Heritage Trust aims to foster a deeper and more inclusive understanding of British history and heritage, promote social harmony and cohesion, and contribute to a more equitable and inclusive society for all.

Our Objectives

Develop and deliver educational programs that highlight the history, heritage, and cultural contributions of South Asian communities in Britain, including workshops, seminars, and training sessions for schools, community organizations, and the wider public.

Organize and showcase arts and cultural events, such as exhibitions, performances, and festivals, that celebrate the diversity and creativity of South Asian communities and promote greater cross-cultural awareness and appreciation.

Commemorate and celebrate key historical events and figures that have shaped the South Asian experience in Britain, such as the partition of India, Pakistan, Bangladesh, the arrival of the Windrush generation, and the contributions of South Asian soldiers.
