Rashidah Owoseni

A proud mother and volunteer hero, Rashidah can usually be found helping out at various charitable initiatives in Salford – everything from supporting homeless people and vulnerable children to working on projects to help improve the community.

Rashidah was living in emergency accommodation with her daughter before a friend recommended Salix Homes to her.  

Unfortunately Rashidah’s daughter was rushed into intensive care due to ongoing health issues during the bidding process for a Salix Homes property. Luckily, neighbourhood officer Cheltzea was on hand to take the paperwork to Rashidah at the hospital to make sure she got her home.

Rashisah said “When my daughter became unwell, the kindness the local community showed me blew me away. Cheltzea from Salix Homes went above and beyond to help us get our property and I can never thank her and my local community enough for their support.

“After seeing Salix Homes advertise the Customer Committee, I just knew I had to apply. I have a passion for volunteering and helping people, but after all the help and support I received during a difficult time I wanted to do something to give back. I’m honoured to be able to the eyes and voice for my local community”.
