Sahara Care celebrates its 20 year history

At the end of last month we hosted a celebration to recognise the 20 years of support we have been delivering to people in London and Essex.

We have proudly spent the last two decades helping people with learning disabilities, physical disabilities, autism and behavioural needs to take control of their lives and the decisions that shape them.

During this time our range of assisted living and supported living services has grown significantly from a single care home to a multi-care home group, which has looked after hundreds of people.

The high quality of our care has seen some of our homes listed amongst the top 20 in London and our staff named as some of the best carers in the country at various national awards.

To Sahara Care celebrates its 20 year historymark our 20th anniversary friends of the group, carers and service users gathered for a party at our Parkside home in Barking, which also marked the birthday of the group’s founder Sharon Kaur.

Sharon established Sahara Care in 1997 with the aim of providing residential care to women with learning difficulties.

Speaking about the success of the company as it celebrates 20 years in business, Sharon said: “It is incredible to think how far our care group has come over the last two decades.

“Starting as a relatively small care provider, we have expanded and expanded, creating a reputation for delivering outstanding services.

“Much of this success wouldn’t have been possible without the dedication of our staff and the support of our residents’ families. I feel truly blessed to not only be celebrating my birthday, but also the achievements of the company I founded all those years ago.”

Sahara Care celebrates its 20 year historyDuring the event service users and guests enjoyed refreshments and food whilst watching entertainment presented by each individual service, which included dancing and traditional Indian drum music.

Sahara Care’s Chairman, Terence Brown, added: “This event was a fantastic way to commemorate such an important point in our company’s history. Sharon has played such a vital role in growing and promoting Sahara Care and it is no understatement to say there would be no Sahara Care without her.

“On behalf of all the staff and service users at Sahara Care I would like to thank her for the dedication and hard work she has put in to getting us to where we are today.”
