Our Amazing Volunteers

Eileen Lindsay – Waterloo Park Day Service Volunteer

I have been with New Directions for about 27 years.

When I visited Waterloo Park, and I immediately felt the warmth and spirit or the centre, I decided to come for a trial day to see it turned out. After only one day, I knew it was for me.

Coming to Waterloo Park has given me many things ;-

1. Feeling of self worth and being valued.

2. I get enormous joy at seeing the pleasure that the Service Users get from the continuous social interaction, where there is much humour and lots and lots of laughter.

3. It has rekindled my “Faith in human kindness” which I had sadly lost.

Waterloo Park is a shining example of what a day service is really all about.

Eileen supports service users with her vast knowledge of local history and reminiscence sessions.


Brenda Davies – Waterloo Park Day Service Volunteer

Brenda is a fantastic edition to the Waterloo Park family. She offers a wide variety of craft and fun sessions for the people who attend. The staff and attenders love Brendas flower arranging classes and she always brings joy, love and laughter to everything she does.

Anthony King – Head Office Communications Volunteer

After attending New Directions’ Bootle Day Centre for over 10 years, I was offered the opportunity to become a volunteer within the Communications Team at Head Office as I have strong IT and design skills.  I commenced my new role in January 2021.  The main project I have been involved with this year is to create a new website for New Directions.  I have been able to contribute towards this project and proud of what we have achieved.  There are many other ideas and projects planned for the future, which I can play a key role in and am looking forward to the future.
