Paul is a strong believer in the power of a positive relationship. In his role as our Student and Confidence Building Friend Manager, he focuses on matching our 18-25 year olds to a suitable mentor/befriender and supporting their relationship as it develops. The volunteer mentor/befriender role very much underpins the work of our charity through the empathetic and non-judgemental support our volunteers provide to our young people. Paul worked extensively in the social housing sector before moving into the charity sector in 2015. He is due to complete a diploma in therapeutic counselling from City Lit in July 2018.
