One of the many inspirational volunteers is Denesh Pawar – Winner of Young Volunteer award. His story is truly inspirational. As a Looked After Child himself, Denesh has chaired the Reach Out Group for children looked after by Slough for a number of years, capturing the views of Slough children looked after and to represent them at a wide range of local, regional and even national events. Denesh has blossomed into a fine young man who is able to “hold a room”.
Denesh has a sustained record of making a difference.  He has not had an easy start in life, no child comes into care lightly. He chooses to move forward, (even in his GCSE year) to help others in care to improve the experience.
