About The Pject

Welcome to our Chai Tea & Dance Project, a unique initiative brought to you by ABA Leeds and Balbir Singh Dance Company. The Chai Project is our way of celebrating the jubilee by embracing the power of tea (or chai) to bring people together, foster strength and resilience, and build bridges between diverse communities. 

The Chai Project offers a unique experience for individuals seeking connection and community. Through a series of workshops and face-to-face sessions, we invite participants to embark on a journey filled with the flavors of tea and the richness of cultural exchange. Led by experienced facilitators, these engaging sessions delve into various tea recipes, brewing techniques, and personal storytelling. 

Our project culminates in a vibrant celebration featuring a captivating dance performance by the renowned Balbir Singh Dance Company. This grand event marks the culmination of our shared journey, symbolizing the unity and strength that can be achieved when diverse communities come together.

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.

Advocacy & Support:

At the Chai Project, we prioritize advocating for the needs of visually impaired individuals and their families. Loneliness and isolation often burden those with visual impairments, leaving them disconnected from their communities. Through our face-to-face sessions and engagement with the wider community, we strive to alleviate these challenges and provide much-needed support. The Chai Project extends our reach to vulnerable individuals in Leeds, ensuring that our services are accessible to those who need them most.
