Who’s Who

Chief Executive – Khalida Luqman

I am the CEO of Tassibee. I have worked for Tassibee since it began. I perform a strategic role, working with partners and funders to ensure the continued success of the organisation and the work it carries out. I work closely with the Board to ensure that Tassibee is driven by its Mission and Core Values. I feel it’s my responsibility and take pride in ensuring that Tassibee continues to change, develop and respond to the needs of its users and the community as a whole.

Admin & Finance Manager – Kathy Wilkinson

I maintain the admin and finance of Tassibee which includes motivating the staff and ensuring we get value for money at every level.  Funding is a high priority and we are working to ensure that we have full resources and staffing levels to ensure that the service users can make the most out of what we offer.

Project Officers – Fiona Martin, Yasmeen Ali & Sat NAdaR

Our role is to support the ladies who are isolated within the community as part of the Tassibee Advocacy Community Service. We deliver the Tassibee Wellbeing Programme, which offers sessions to help the ladies come together, develop new skills and share experiences.  We also offer advocacy support to help the ladies access information and make informed choices.

Support Staff -Nazia, MaQSood, Shahzadi, NAzia, Sidra, Fazia, Nazima

Our role is to support clients who are receiving a Direct Payments budget. We take the clients to their appointments, shopping and generally provide support to enable them to go out of the house. This service is invaluable to the clients as for some, this is the only time they see anyone outside their home. “I like Thursdays, I get to go look around the market” says one client.

We are constantly looking for Bank Support workers to enhance the service we provide, at  present there are 2 who work as and when, this helps to support clients with unexpected appointments and unforeseen circumstances which may arise.  If you are interested in joining our Bank Support team please contact us.

The organisation also employees a number of staff on short-term, part-time contracts to support the various projects that we undertake.

Management Committee – SUghra, Ruth, Keith, Khatija, Summeera, SHabina

Our role is to oversee the strategic direction and leadership of Tassibee. We meet every couple of months to review and manage the vision of Tassibee. We are all volunteers and always looking for  new members, if you are interested in joining our team please contact us.
