"My first month working at UDB has gone really fast – I’m having a lot of fun! The young people over in Erdington Hall are definitely characters and I’m enjoying hanging out with them and getting to know them. My table tennis ability has definitely improved in this last month too!
I decided to work for UDB because they gave me the opportunity to invest in the things and places I am passionate about. My role here is to be a youth worker for the Erdington Hall and Birches Green area, which involves running drop in clubs, doing street level, going into Kingsbury School and doing various projects. Another part of my role that I’m developing is working with other agencies to build up a response to the issue of domestic abuse in the area. This is something that I feel God has really given me a heart for and I am looking forward to getting involved.
One of my favourite things about this job is getting to work with a team that is both lovely and hilarious...everyone gets on really well.
Can’t wait to see what God is going to do over this next year and looking forward to meeting some more new people!"
