Rob’s story

Rob volunteer Young Bristol

Rob joined Young Bristol in 2013, struggling with his academic education due to dyslexia and ADHD; relatively hidden disabilities which are often not recognised or understood by everyone.

After regularly attending Young Bristol’s Kayak Club, Rob was at a stage where he could help our instructors to deliver sessions. Rob began helping on general activity sessions, volunteering after school and during school holidays. Before too long Rob was giving up his time, volunteering hundreds of hours every year to benefit other young people in Bristol.

“Young Bristol offers an opportunity for young people to succeed in talents not recognised and taught at school. This can be a lifeline to some kids,” says Robs mum. “Rob shines because he responded to the opportunities afforded to him by volunteering to make sure that they are offered to others.”
