1392Barry Kirkwood sent this Small Charities Week SOTM in from Surrey in the UK.
He wrote: I work for a charity called The Amber Foundation - we help homeless and unemployed young people get their lives back on track. The photo features one of our residents - Paul Doug Jones, who has a history of drug and alcohol abuse and has spent time in prison.
He's currently living with us at The Amber Foundation and working hard to move away from the troubles of the past and onto a bright and positive future. I asked him if I could take a photo for SOTM and he was happy to take part!"
