Liverpool volunteer wins national award

A volunteer who helps young people in Liverpool has won a national award, recognising her hard work and dedication.  Alexia Zavros, who has been volunteering at drug and alcohol treatment charity Addaction in Liverpool for more than a year, received the Marsh Christian Trust Volunteer Award. Alexia was honoured at a ceremony in the Palace of Westminster on 2 December along with three other Addaction volunteers from across the country. During her time with Addaction, Alexia ran the Baby Project, a 6 week course for young people thinking about having a baby. This includes asking teens to make a diary of their daily lives and considering how a baby would affect them, as well as taking home an electronic baby.  When some of the girls expressed concern about self harm during the course, Alexia arranged an expert speaker to address self harm.  Alexia also supported Addaction staff with their group sessions in schools. Alexia says:- "I work with children and was looking for ways to help people and expand my skills. I took a chance when I applied [to volunteer], I really didn't think I'd get through. There's been a lot of firsts for me as a volunteer. I'm gaining so much through it."
