Meet Stephen Lawley a volunteer
at Creative Support's new hub
What has helped you in your
I was diagnosed with anxiety
and depression, which started
in 2012 after I was held at gun
point. I went to art therapy and
after was referred to Creative
Support. When the new hub
opened I wanted to be give back
to the people who helped me,
and applied to volunteer as the
kitchen assistant. Working in the
café has helped me a lot with my
confi dence. I learnt to be more
patient with people and found my
passion for food again!
What do you do to keep active?
I play in a paintball team. I travel
around the country to play with my
old school friends.
Name three things that help to
keep you well.
H2O, healthy meals and staying
active! Volunteering has helped
tremendously with my mental
health. I enjoy chatting to people
and making them food. The
lasagne we make is the best!
