About The Project

Aasra, meaning “shelter,” is an empowering initiative delivered by ABA Leeds to support unpaid carers from diverse communities in Leeds. We are proud to be one of the trusted partners working in collaboration with Live Well Leeds. Our dedicated team of multilingual diverse staff will work across Leeds to identify, engage, inform, advise, and support unpaid, diverse carers to access available services.

At Aasra, we are dedicated to providing inclusive and personalised care and support to unpaid carers. Our collective aim is to provide inclusive, accessible, and person-centered support services to improve the lives of unpaid carers from South Asian and minority ethnic communities in Leeds. To achieve this we are committed to working, coordinating, and deliver services in collaboration with other community and statutory organisations.

Mental health & wellbeing support for Unpaid Carers in diverse communities.

What is an Unpaid Carer?

An Unpaid Carer is a person of any age who provides unpaid help and support to a wife, husband, partner, relative, friend or neighbour who cannot manage without the carers help.


Advocacy is taking action to ensure our service users are able to speak out, to express their views and defend their rights.


We understand that everyone’s needs are unique to them, which is why we offer so many different types of support for our service users.
