We are delighted to welcome Siraj Ali to the Children First Derby team.

Siraj has a wealth of experience of working with young disadvantaged children and young people across the city.

After spending many years volunteering to support young people at various local organisations, Siraj began a tutoring service, based in Normanton, working to support under privileged children, helping them achieve better school grades to increase their opportunities.

This service went on to develop into a registered charity, which Siraj continues to work with and support.

Siraj joins the Children First Derby team as a Mentoring Service Assistant, where he will help to support the operation of the charity’s Mentoring Service.

Keen to make a difference, Siraj will draw on his years of experience of working with young people, aiming to provide our supported children and young people with the best possible outcomes and enabling them to progress into adulthood with as many opportunities as possible.

Welcome to the team Siraj – it’s great to have you on board!
