The Extraordinary Story of Tiffeny’s Powerful Voice
At Westminster City Council, we don’t just listen to the voices and experiences of our residents, we listen to our people too. Tiffeny is a single mum whose young son has ADHD and before joining our team, she never thought she’d find a job that gave her flexibility and freedom to support her son’s needs. As a neurodivergent woman herself, she also never expected to be part of a team that not only supports her needs, but actively celebrates them, where people encourage her to be her true self. That’s what she found here at the City of Westminster
Working as an Engagement Officer within the Corporate Property team means that she gets to meet people from all walks of life within the community supporting the development of positive change, especially being the voice for young people where it matters, in education, training, or employment. Her experiences and her amazing ability to relate to others means that within the first few months of joining our team, she’d already made a huge impact on things like accessibility in the Borough. Tiffeny feels heard and that’s because we know how important it is to listen.
