Lowie is twenty and works for The Scout Association in Bristol, and has previously worked for the World Association of Girl Guides and Girl Scouts, the British Red Cross and National Trust. After moving to the city in January of 2018, they wanted to find out more about volunteering for local organisations. After visiting Off The Record, a Bristol-based wellbeing charity, they joined The Mentality Project, which works to challenge the stigma, inequality and discrimination surrounding young people’s mental health. Through this, they met loads of great people who were currently part of Freedom of Mind and others who had previously been involved. Feeling inspired, they applied and is now working as a Fundraiser, in the brand new Business Development team! Lowie is passionate about creating friendly, non-judgemental spaces to talk about mental health, mental health related illnesses and wellbeing, and is excited to be helping to start more conversations in Bristol.
