Eric worked as a Private Client Lawyer for many years, followed by a role as Client Adviser for DWP Jobcentre Plus. He joined Groundswell in 2016 as a volunteer after completing the HHPA training. Eric’s volunteering involved accompanying clients to and from health appointments and, where necessary, advocating on their behalf as well as delivering group in-reach sessions. Eric is now working now as one of Groundswell’s administrators, bringing with him many transferable skills gained from his previous employment. In his spare time Eric is part of a community knitting group that donates its hand knitted hats and scarves to Groundswell which are then distributed to our clients.
