Hello

My name is Rufia Ashraf, I am a local Councillor in St James and Dallington Spencer ward.  I am also proud to be the very first Northampton Town Council Mayor.  

 

I was born and educated in Northampton.  I am also a qualified social worker and a community activist.  As a passionate environmentalist I really enjoy working in the community

by organising walkabouts, litter picks and looking at ways to improve our local neighbourhood.  For many years I have been organising food aid collections for food banks and fundraising.  I enjoy organising community events to bring people together.  I have a good relationship with local people and a good reputation with local council, statutory and voluntary sector.   

I was keen to become a trustee of NDAS, because having worked as domestic abuse officer, I saw many challenges facing the service.  I have a family member who was subjected to abuse for years and saw many local women with language barriers approach me to seek help.
