Dr Das who led the drive to found the Indian Senior Citizens' Centre (ISCC) in the late 1980's after a lifetime of work as a geriatric specialist in Manchester.He 'retired' himself in 1990, but more than 10 years on he still works tirelessly to improve and support the lives of the elders he obviously cares for so much.
He still serves on a wide range of public bodies such as Voluntary Action Manchester, Older Peoples' Network, Manchester Council for Community Relations and Age Concern Manchester. Recently he has been heavily involved in the National Service Framework for Older People introduced by the National Health Service.

Dr Das has been recognised with numerous awards including an MBE and the Whitbread Volunteers Award in the mid 1990s.
