Former Small Charities Coalition CEO becomes first director of City Sikhs

Former Small Charities Coalition chief executive Rita Chadha has been appointed as the first director of the charity City Sikhs.

Chadha left the Coalition earlier this year and has also held chief executive and trustee positions at Barking and Dagenham CVS and Refugee and Migrant Forum of Essex and London.

She was appointed from a shortlist of four people, after the charity received 39 applications.

City Sikhs is a network of Sikh professionals across the UK which has more than 10,000 members. Inclusion and diversity across society are among the charity’s priorities.

This is the first time in the organisation’s 10-year history that it has had a director.

“City Sikhs is celebrating its 10th anniversary this year and we are excited and looking forward to working with Rita to help take City Sikhs to the next stage of its development, “said the charity’s chair Jasvir Singh.

Rita Chadha, added, “I am looking forward to working with the trustees, advisory group, volunteer ambassadors and our partners to continue to build City Sikhs as one of the leading Sikh and South Asian organisations in Britain promoting community development, education, capacity building and community cohesion”.
