Family Support Volunteer
Hello I’m Gill,
I first became aware of LND in 2019 through the local school and realised that this wonderful organisation really cared and helped boys/ young men realise their worth. I am both Nan and carer to two teenage grandsons and have seen first hand the benefit of the Lads Need Dads programme having referred my eldest grandson three years ago.
I felt drawn to sign up as a family support mentor as by day I work at Tendring Citizens advice as a family advisor, helping families and vulnerable people and I wanted to repay all the help and support that has been offered to me by LND by being a family support worker for LND and think that both my professional and personal experience leant itself to the role perfectly.
