Hi, my name is Gordon Barlow. I am 21 years old and I live in Fife. As a frequent visitor of the One Stop Shop in Fife, I have benefited hugely from attending the 16+ social drop in and the walking group. In the little spare time I have left over, I like to read, watch Eastenders, meet new people and explore new ventures.
Since completing the One Stop Shop's social skills for employment workshop, I have recently gained a voluntary administration placement at a local charity. Becoming a volunteer has provided an outlet to use and develop new skills and has proved to be a rewarding and enlightening experience.
The One Stop Shop has become a very important aspect of my life and I now attend more and more of the groups, activities and assorted events. One of the groups I have recently joined is the One Stop Shop Involvement Group which meets monthly to discuss the activities at the One Stop Shop and affords members to be more involved in the newsletter and Facebook pages which publish information about what is going on. As a member of this group I conducted an interview with Debi Brown.
It was a really profitable discussion, which shone light on a vast array of issues, giving me much to reflect on and plenty worth sharing with all who would gain from Debi’s experience. Enjoy!
