Hi, I'm Lauren. I worked for WYFC in my gap year back in 2016-2017. Since then I have been to Liverpool Hope University to study Childhood and Youth and Christian Theology, each summer I'd come back and volunteer with WYFC though. It's great to be back volunteering with WYFC again! I work in the secondary schools with Andy and on our new project, Well Kidz.
