Ollie’s story

Supported by Samena, Youth Support Practitioner


Samena has always been there, running weekly young carers lunch clubs, trips and activities, as well as free lunches once a term. I’ve also had one-to-one support from her to help me with my mental health and coping mechanisms.

Thanks to her support, I’ve been given a range of opportunities to distract me from my worries at home. These chances have led to even greater things. I’m one of nearly 40 Anti-Bullying Ambassadors at my school, and we’re all trained by the Diana Award, through Samena. I have the incredible opportunity to lead them, alongside my new role as one of 10 members of the National Anti-Bullying Youth Board, representing over 40,000 ambassadors across the country.

Samena and Eikon have been with me every step of the way, through thick and thin. I couldn’t be more thankful for the endless support that she has provided me and the opportunities I’ve been given as a result.
