Introduction to the work of the Community Interest Company (CiC) Meri Yaadain (My Memories)

In this step, Mohammed Akhlak Rauf MBE, describes the work of the Community Interest Company (CiC) Meri Yaadain (My Memories), of which he is Founder and Director.

Meri Yaadain is a charitable initiative that supports ethnic minority people who live with dementia and the people who care for them. Meri Yaadain also works to raise awareness of dementia in ethnic minority communities, and of ethnic minority experiences of dementia among statutory and charitable community organisations.

Meri Yaadain is an example of grassroots voluntary and community organisations that provide mental health support for ethnic minority communities. While Meri Yaadain supports all South Asian communities, a significant part of their work is with Muslim communities.
