Tassibee has been my window to the wider community in Rotherham. Having recently moved to Britain, the charity helped me to adjust to a new country, a new way of life, with open arms. I gained the confidence to become involved (within the community), to work and gain experience so that I too could contribute by joining the team. Now, due to the valuable lessons I have gained, I have become a board member so that I may have a greater impact on the lives of vulnerable women.
Having worked within the primary sector for many years, my experience with children (and their parents) has taught me to value positive community relationships and support. I feel, through interacting with the families of a borough, I have acquired a valuable empathy towards the needs of others.
