Stuart has been volunteering for 2-3 years now. He found out about Community Friends through the Church, as he is an elder and wanted to come along to help out. He feels that he is good at communicating and can use his stable life experiences to give people good advice. He can provide a listening ear and just a friendly face to talk to. He says that he purposely plays the joker and uses humor to break down barriers. He wants to see people leaving with some sort of plan about what they can do with their lives. He also would like to see some of the group members becoming volunteers, as they have so much to give and experiences to share. He wants more appropriate and better signposting to take place for the members when they attend, so the service can continue to meet people’s needs.
