Ben joined Home-Start in August 2018 as Finance Officer.
Ben also volunteers with Bradford Central Foodbank, helping to process their food donations and keep their warehouse stocked. He was a volunteer youth worker for about 15 years and a trustee of a youth work charity for about 10. He has also volunteered as a steward for a national faith, arts and justice festival called Greenbelt for the past 12 years.
Ben works in a similar capacity to Home-Start for a number of other charities around Bradford and Leeds, looking after their finances, communication, websites, publicity and other things.
Ben says: "Home-Start is a great service, which gets alongside families in their own homes to offer advice, support and a listening ear - it changes people's lives."
