Jonathan began volunteering in 2007, prompted by the Police interview after being raped and wanting to educate and inform to deal with such situations effectively. With the support and encouragement he decided to speak out, and agreed to do a talk for Lancashire Police on their Sexual Offence Training Course. Also with Renaissance (Drugline) in Blackpool, he now befriends clients who’re facing many different issues in their lives, and he loves helping and supporting them in any way that he can.
