Trevor began volunteering for Central Southwark Community Hub in November 2017 doing one shift a week. When he arrived, he had not been out for many years since he stopped working. He was very quiet and said very little. That all changed as he started realising that he had lots to offer and that his help was needed and appreciated.
We have recently undergone changes leaving the organisation needing new volunteers. Trevor would support new volunteers to feel comfortable and offered more of himself wherever and whenever he is required. Our clients know and respects him and know him to be the quiet caring person. Trevor now volunteers 3 days per week on a regular basis. He is one of the most flexible people we have.
Trevor who had felt uncomfortable with outsiders now enjoys coming in to volunteer 3 times a week.
What a gem we have in Trevor. We have made him a keyholder for a number of our sites
