Peer Supporters&
    Class volunteers

 Our Peer Supporters are some of our older members that have shown great skills in their own

classes and have demonstrated that they are responsible, helpful and friendly. The Peer supporters

help Ali and the rest of the teaching team deliver the class content to the younger members.

Hi I am Adam, I have been with True Colours since the very beginning & I am so lucky to be picked to be the website editor.

I love using my skills to help this amazing charity.

I have grown so much confidence since I have been here and I've made lots of fab friends.

I am also a Peer Supporter for the younger members, I really enjoy helping the little ones settle into class.

Hi everyone, My name is Darren Renforth and I am one of the earliest members to join True Colours Theatre in January 2016. I love performing, singing, dancing, acting, script writing and being the part of the team.  I am now a peer supporter and I am enjoying this very much as this gives me more responsibility.

                    Emma
                 Class Volunteer

Hi my name is Emma Rebecca and I am one of the first members of True Colours Theatre.

 

 I joined when I was 10 years old and now I am 18 years.

 

When I first joined True Colours  Theatre I was a young girl who felt broken due to severe bullying, but thanks to True Colours my confidence has grown.

 

I love sign language and my favourite part of being a peer supporter is making sure the younger members are safe and happy and don’t ever feel like I did.

Thank you!

I'm Becky and a Class Volunteer.

 

I've been volunteering for True Colours for a year now and it ties in everything with everythingI love! Dance, drama, singing and helping children and young people.

 

I'm originally from London and have been performing since I was 5 years old. 

 

I have my own complex learning disability which is Tuberous sclerosis (a very rare genetic condition) which makes it harder for me to do the every day things other people would  do naturally. 

My daughter also has the same condition as me.  

 

True Colours has made me embrace my condition as they are inclusive with no stigma. We are a huge family who support each other!
