Annie H-C – Community Youthwork Coordinator (Stroud Area)
Annie was brought up in church but did wander off for a while to see what the big wide world had in store for her. In that time she became a mummy to four beautiful children. Life became a little more difficult then but in 2008 she came back into church and found an awesome church that nurtured, loved and supported her. She worked with the children and young people helping in the children’s church, youth club and helping with the dance troop. Annie loves singing and dancing and joined the Gospel choir at church, so you will probably hear her singing, humming or banging a beat somewhere around.
In 2010 Annie studied Youth work at University and in that time she worked at The Rock in Cheltenham and YG in Gloucester. Annie says: “I love being a youth worker and am passionate about helping the young people of Stroud in fulfilling the best in their lives.”
Laura P – Sessional Youthworker
Laura is originally from Hungary and came to England 3.5 years ago when she finished university there. While looking to do some volunteering preferably with animals, she discovered The Door from my host family. Laura started as a volunteer mentor "my first mentee was really inspiring. She achieved all the goals we set and it was a real blessing to be there by her side and to see her reaching her goals. After a few months volunteering I felt I wanted to be involved with youthwork as well, so started volunteering in the Drop-in." In July 2016 Laura joined the youthwork team as a sessional youthworker. "I am so grateful for this role and it is a huge privilege to be a part of the amazing Door family and bring a positive change into young people’s lives. I truly believe I finally found my role I have been called for and I am so excited about my future with The Door."
