Nahid is the Curriculum Co-ordinator at Crisis, a national charity for homeless people. As someone who herself had personal experience of homelessness, this issue is very close to Nahid’s heart. She is a specialist tutor and assessor who set up the Learning Support Unit at Crisis Skylight London to support clients with specific learning difficulties. She believes that there is a clear but often unrecognised relationship between specific learning difficulties and homelessness. She is passionate about the empowerment of her clients through their accessing of assistive technology; developing independent learning skills and ultimately independent learners.
