An amazing testimonial for Paul Robinson, Mentor, Tendring

“I really enjoy working alongside Paul and can see the positive impact his work has on my young people. 

Paul, and other mentors I work with, have life stories that are an inspiration.  They inspire my work but most importantly, inspire my young people who I see come out of their shells, open up and talk.  They don’t even realise – the power of sport and indirect approaches.  Kids sitting in a room and talking about their life when on the spot, doesn’t work.  Kids kicking a ball around, hearing ‘lived experiences’ and how people dug themselves out of their hole… that is real!

They see that people don’t do it on their own but by accepting help.  They see that talking about stuff can be a release and help them to make better decisions.  Paul often brings his dog to sessions – again, animals have this magic power.  They give unconditional love and ‘just get people’.  It really helps kids and adults open up.  

What Paul offers is what many of these kids miss – a relationship, a connection, someone they can relate to.  He offers unpressured opportunities, no taboos and a safe place.  Paul is ‘lived experience’ and we can all learn from what he has to offer.  As said, a true inspiration and a bit of magic for the kids”.
