Kaisu relocated to Chester 4 years ago, looking for somewhere with a strong sense of community in which to raise a family. She was delighted to find exactly such a place in Hoole. A life-long Lib Dem voter, she took the plunge and joined the party in 2015 in response to the BREXIT referendum result.
Kaisu spent ten years in the not-for-profit sector working in communications. She has authored research work on the challenges facing girls and young women in the 21st Century and worked with both the Department for Education and the Cabinet Office on projects to extend informal youth work opportunities to young people from areas of high social deprivation. She passionately believes in the potential of all young people as agents of change and is deeply concerned that the current political situation serves only to reduce young people’s opportunities for success and fulfilment.
Kaisu has spent much of her career working with volunteers and is a proud volunteer herself. In addition to her activity with Chester Liberal Democrats she is a current Trustee of the Hoole Community Centre and a former Trustee of youth development charity, Lattitude Global Volunteering. She also volunteers with Storyhouse.
