With being a young male & ex military, Dan brings a lot of extra skills to the centre.    He engages with the teens through his passion for sport and this is seen through his encouragement and enthusiasm during & outside the sessions.

Jenny Wallace, Secretary & Volunteer

Jenny has been volunteering at The Base since early 2016, originally to gain experience working with children of different ages.  Jenny enjoyed the sessions so much, she continues to help out on a regular basis: “I love that every week brings something different and the joy The Base brings to our young people is amazing to see!”. She has now taken up the role as The Base Secretary since our AGM 2020.

Lucy Davis,  Volunteer

Lucy originally started volunteering at The Base to gain experience for her university course, but loved working with the children and the rest of the Base team so much, she stayed on!  Lucy is currently a student Social Worker at Solent University and is hoping to work with children and families when she qualifies.

We’re also very proud to have a fabulous team of regular volunteers, especially on Monday & Tuesday night sessions, both teenagers and parent helpers. We couldn’t do our job without you, so thank you all!
