Nasim Banu Esmail

My name is Nasim and I am a Community Member of Locala. I came to live in England from Kenya and as such I could not attend school. I was extremely lonely as I didn’t have any family to support me. However, with help from the Health Visitor she introduced me to a mother and baby group and there I made lots of friends. We kept in touch and visited each other’s houses for a cuppa and a chat. During this time, the children could all play together.

Once my children began school I became involved with my local play group as a volunteer. I then went on to become involved with many courses arranged by Kirklees Council, the NHS and other community agencies. Due to my own experiences and the struggles I have overcome (with support), I would like to volunteer some of my time to help with Locala’s Parents Panel.
