Saiqa Khan

Saiqa Khan joined KHAAS in the late 1990s. KHAAS’s aim from its inception in 1987 was to fill the void in healthcare provision for Asian families who have disabled children. A language barrier, and the fact that disability was a taboo subject within the Asian community, represented a challenge. KHAAS helps youngsters and their parents through play schemes, daily drop ins, support groups, skills courses, residential trips, respite care and carers support.
