About me

Occupation Social Worker
Location Manchester, United Kingdom
Introduction I am a social worker based in Manchester, I also teach English language to people who would otherwise have no other way of accessing lessons. I have one daughter who is a musician and a lovely little dog. I would describe myself as just an average type of person however, I do have a passion for the rights of the human. I began working as a social worker in 2004 and for a couple of years my job was good, challenging and everything I hoped it would be until a man walked into my place of work. He was Iranian, extremely courtious with reasonable English. When I started working with him and listened to his story it seemed so far from reality that I went home and researched extensively. This was the moment that I realised I had just encountered what the British government would term 'A Living Ghost'
