Faisal Ahmed

I currently work as a Caseworker on the RISE Project. Our main objective is to support refugees into Employment, Training and Courses. I support, advice and guide clients with welfare issues such as Universal Credit, Housing, NRPF, Social Service, Safe Guarding etc. I also signpost clients onto suitable courses and job vacancies.

My experience and skills

I have over 7 years of experience working and supporting homeless people at The Salvation Army – supported housing. I have successfully maintained good relationships and provide excellent customer service and support to meet and surpass, expectations and requirements of people who are suffering from Mental Health, Physical Health, Substance Misuse etc and helped moved them back into society to live independently. In addition, I have great knowledge of IT, web design and leaflets. As well as contacts with various organisations in supporting people. At my previous job, I worked alongside stars such as Russell Brand, Tony Adams, John Barnes, Peter Shilton, and John Hartson to raise awareness to support the organisation.

My interests

I enjoy spending time with family and friends, involved in community events and projects to support East London Mosque. I am a big Man Utd fan and I played football semi-pro standard and currently play and manage my Sunday League team. I am also a very good Snooker player and play in tournaments at my local club.
