Gordon and Roberts Story

I was lucky enough to get to spend the day with Robert and Gordon in their volunteering capacity at the Nourish Support Centre for ‘Happy Mondays’. Based in Kirkcaldy, the Nourish Support Centre provides much need support to families in Fife who have additional support needs. Founded in 2011 by five parents who all had children with additional support needs, they wanted to address the significant gaps in support available for families in the situation and help others with the daily challenges they face.

Robert and Gordon both volunteer in multiple roles with Nourish, also helping at the charity shop and hub.

Watch the videos to find out more about the incredible work and engagement Robert and Gordon do within Nourish.

If you are interested in volunteering with Nourish, please do get in touch with Karen via email at hr@nourishsupportcentre.com

Gordon's Story

Volunteering with Additional Support Needs can bring unexpected challenges that you didn't expect. Gordon shares how his volunteering helps him and what he gets out of helping others by showing them that independence isn't something that is out of reach.

Robert's Story

Sometimes you never plan to get involved but life has a way of showing how one small act of kindness can lead to another... and another. Robert began his volunteer journey with Nourish by helping pick up a couple of bits from a local bakers, now he is one oft he lead volunteers within Nourish.
