Background

Sikh Sewaks Australia (SSA) is a non-profitable organization, based in Melbourne. It was formed in 2010. This organization has been providing welfare and support services since 2010 to help the Sikh community grow – religiously, economically, and culturally, while helping Sikhs assimilate as well as become independent and good contributing Australian residents.

These services help contribute towards the wellbeing of the overall Australian community and helps share the burden of the Australian Government towards making Australia a better place for all of us and our future generations.

The services provided by Sikh Sewaks Australia are premised upon the belief pillars of the Sikh religion:

  • Remembering God and living in gratitude.

  • Sharing your time and money with others – irrespective of colour, caste or religion

  • Praying for the wellbeing of the world and looking at humanity as one - as the children of the same one God

  • Honest living and honest earning

Shelter and Food:

As part of its support system, Sikh Sewaks Australia has been providing Shelter and Food to needy students and families, as well as to new immigrants and families that move to Australia.

We have also been housing domestic violence and domestic dispute victims. Our members have been kind enough to house impacted individuals in their homes.

Thus far, this service has been limited to Indian Immigrants and families. We aim to gather sufficient funds to extend this service to the broader community.

SSA has also been helping migrant families and students acquire rental accommodation and providing them with basic furniture/amenities and helping pay rental where needed.

Domestic Disputes

As part of our help line and support, Sikh Sewaks Australia has been extending support to domestic disputes and domestic violence victims. We have a 24/7 helpline service.
