Spotlight on CCG Members - Narinder Sidhu - September 2021
Sep, 1 2021
There can be two sides to a coin. One may be playful and fun whilst the other serious and career minded. That is true for this month’s ‘Spotlight on CCG Members’, Derbyshire based Narinder Sidhu.
Narinder works in the social work sector and is currently employed by the NHS as a Mental Health Practitioner within the Child and Adolescent Mental Health Services.
She has found opportune time to educate young people as a Guest Lecturer on social work undergraduate and post-graduate programmes. Speaking on a variety of subjects including:-
- Social work law and policy
- Domestic Abuse
- Female Genital Mutilation
- Honour based violence and forced marriage
Narinder works closely with those in the community speaking confidently about equality, diversity and inclusion. She is a council member with the British Association of Social Workers. Before committing to this role she was a Forensic Social Worker employed by the NHS in a low secure setting working with inpatients within the criminal system.
Away from her serious professional life Narinder is a creative person. She is able to write profound poetic works of art which have tackled subjects such as racism. Travelling helps her to cultivate her love of street art. She is able to capture art in still and moving image as a photographer and videographer. It’s during these trips where she enjoys recreational time with family and friends.
Narinder has a natural love for nature, animals and music. These three loves are embedded in the adventures and happy memories she creates in her life.
She speaks candidly about the person she really is,
“I am a change maker and I am keen to use my creative talent to open people’s minds. I am passionate about making a positive impact to people’s lives and society. Believe in your creativity and remain authentic...this is what makes art so beautiful”.
Narinder, we warmly welcome you to the CCG and look forward to discovering more about your professional and personal life.
