Some successes and some failures
Bob - Sussex
Bob is one such fellow. He was referred by a local agency and
now attends of his own choosing. His schooling was undertaken at a
school for children with special needs, he was bullied to the
extent of having bricks thrown at him by his peers. As with all new
volunteers, we ask that they write a short life history to help us
get to know them better.
Bob has mental health issues, which have not made it easy to get
a job. Still living at home with his older brother and parents now
well into their 70's.
Bob writes about his volunteering at CfC. Saying " I like
the fact I can get up in the morning and go to work like everyone
else in this world. I am allowed to function as an individual and
have found a new confidence and the ability to work with others. I
used to be shy and was bullied, I wouldn't say boo to
Nowadays its the opposite and a real job to stop him jabbering.
Sadly for people like Bob, the outside world is not so caring and a
lot more demanding.
