Having started out at learndirect as a learner with really low confidence after leaving his job due to debilitating mental health issues, David has turned his life around. . He started volunteering for The Lesbian & Gay Foundation (LGF) on their Archive & Heritage project, making LGB&T history more accessible to those who may not have much knowledge in this area.
David said: “I am incredibly proud to have been shortlisted for a learndirect Inspiration Award.”
The regional winners in the north will be announced at a ceremony to be held on May 13.
