Sartaz’s career background has seen him work with marginalised street homeless people as a Support Worker with St. Mungo’s and as an OISC registered Immigration Caseworker at Ealing Law Centre. It is for his outstanding work in both areas that he has been recognised with this fitting accolade.

Sartaz is currently in training to become a Barrister. We wish Sartaz well in his future career and long may the accolades continue.

“The support I received was really useful and it was the only place where I actually got clear answers to my query. All the people that have spoken to me here have been extremely knowledgeable and have asked the right questions for my situation. It has been a very positive and enlightening experience. No other service I went to could give me the answers or even show that they had done research into the issue. Thank you to everyone, you were the only ones who could give me answers, it’s great that a charity is doing this and giving advice.”
