Paul is a Navigator on the Game Changer project at RIO. He works in East Cornwall supporting young people 15 and 24 who are seeking employment or looking to get into education or training.

Paul previously worked for a Homeless Organisation in the Midlands supporting young people with finding and maintaining a home and enabling them to develop life skills and tackle the many barriers young people face.

He has 8 years’ experience working in a housing support role and been involved with creating and developing various young people’s projects tackling key issues affecting young people such as unemployment, confidence, mental health and social isolation.

“RIO is a fantastic place to work, I am surrounded by amazing people and ideas, who are driven to help young people and also create awesome stuff which can benefit communities on a huge scale. Every day is different and being in a position to inspire and create opportunities for young people and empower them to see what they are capable of is amazing to see and I am fortunate to be in a position to see this happen every week at RIO.”
