My role is to primarily work with the clients who access our centre and to support the General Manager with the day-to-day running of services. I also take the lead on supporting the students who join us on placements.
I am from Canterbury and, after finishing studies at the University of Kent, began volunteering at Catching Lives in June 2013 as a kitchen volunteer. I enjoy working for Catching Lives as we are a charity that takes a holistic view of individuals, understanding that everyone is different and that people often have many overlapping support needs that cannot be addressed separately.
I work two evenings a week as a youth worker at the nearby Thanington Neigbourhood Resource Centre, a position which is paid for by Catching lives in order to engage with young people in our community in a positive way. I am also involved in helping to organise (and take part in) many fundraising activities, such as abseils and sponsored walks.
