A proud resident of Bristol for over 40 years, Sarwat is a retired Early Years teacher who enjoyed supporting Bristol’s inner city for 30 years. Sarwat has always been a passionate advocate for equal access of opportunities and enhancing the quality of educational provision for all children regardless of background or where they live. Throughout her teaching career she was a well-known champion of inclusive practice and supported Bristol’s schools with adopting approaches which valued diversity and raised awareness of the value of cultural capital and home languages. During her career, she led on professional development training in cultural awareness and has supported leadership teams to implement race equality. As a result of her expertise and dedication to her pupils and their families, she developed a reputation of a trusted adviser and advocate of ethnic minority communities in Bristol.

She has previously been a school governor and held committee membership for several community organisations with a particular interest in highlighting adult education needs of minority women. Now retired, Sarwat is continually exploring ways to volunteer in order to lend her time and expertise to help others. She currently provides Urdu, Punjabi and Hindi interpreting through Bristol City Council Interpreting service. An avid Nordic walker who enjoys exploring the many green spaces Bristol has to offer, she also loves gardening, painting, going to the cinema, playing board games and enjoying the company of a diverse group of friends who enrich her life.
