James Rose, 15 years old, serves as a real example of how anything is possible regardless of your situation or who you are. James has been actively involved with our Big Local Youth Action Team for over 2 years and has been leading the development (alongside young volunteers) our new youth peer-to-peer mental health support programme, due to launch in early 2020.
On Friday 6th December 2019, he spoke at our 4th Big Local Community Volunteer Awards Ceremony in front of over 200 people. He delivered a strong, passionate and compelling speech about his personal volunteering journey and the importance of getting involved with your local community. A future Mayor of London or Prime Minister in the making?
