My name is Alex Knight, I came to The Wellspring in 2011 as a social work student on placement.
I qualified as a social worker in 2012 and became a full time Project Worker shortly after. My role involves co-ordinating the volunteer rota and supporting our service users with a diverse range of needs; from a simple phone call to preventing evictions, homelessness, enabling and supporting people to access benefits, education, employment and mental health services.
The list is endless, if I can help I will. I believe everyone has the right to be given opportunities, a chance in life to learn from the past and be a part of a better future, The Wellspring can enable that and I feel proud to be part of such a wonderful, diverse team of staff and volunteers.
