After returning to Leeds in 2006 & working for O2, Payam joined the companies core CSR ThinkBig Team in Leeds driving a number of  key initiatives relating to Food Poverty as well as supporting organisations dealing with supporting  the cities Homeless & Rough sleepers. Also outside work Payam started to support some of the rough sleepers on a daily basis which led to setting up a regular monthly event which continues to this day.

As a continuation of this work Payam started to volunteer with the team at TRFJP ( re named Armley Junk-tion) & became a Co-director in October 2014. Currently Payam is also the  Non UK Regional co-ordinator on behalf of TRJFP.

Payam is  looking  immigrate  to the U.S.A by the end of 2016 to be closer to his family, also  with the aim of  driving  and supporting the growth of the TRJFP across North America.
