Doorway Volunteer Profiles – Andrew

Andrew was inspired to volunteer with a homeless organisation after watching Channel 4’s Secret Millionaire.

He found Doorway online and has been volunteering there for five months.

He enjoys being on the front desk of the drop-in session as it is a very interactive role.

Andrew believes that the warmth of welcome is very important when guests first come in as it can ‘blow away the black clouds’ that many may be experiencing.

Andrew gets a real sense of perspective from volunteering at Doorway through the guests’ appreciation of the value of simple things, such as a smile and a sincere welcome.

He states that ‘life is about treating individuals with respect’ and that Doorway provides this alongside non-judgemental support.
