Video: Raat di Roti

Connecting Punjabi-speaking families and isolated older people to share an evening meal

Delivered by Touchstone, Raat di Roti matched Punjabi-speaking volunteers with Punjabi-speaking older people to share an evening meal together. The project came to a close in October 2017, but it has left a legacy of learning that will inform future commissioning and planning. 

Though originally planned as a fortnightly event, some volunteers enjoyed the activity so much that they increased their visits to every week. 

In this short video, a volunteer talks with Project Worker Jesvinder about how she benefited from the experience.
