Alex Burke, SLATE service user
"I'm Alex and I have been living on the SLATE Project since October 2018.
I went to London in the beginning of February to receive an award for being an outstanding volunteer for Action for Children (ACF).
I was nominated for going above and beyond as a volunteer and therefore attended the celebratory ceremony, where I won the award.
It felt fantastic to win this and I am proud of myself. I plan to continue working within the community and other organisations like AFC."
