First interaction with Badu: Aged 50, 2021

CASE STUDY: PEOPLE

“Whenever I am around the BADU community, it gives me a sense of belonging and friendship that I have found challenging in the last couple of years. Althea and the community team have been great in pulling me out and away from my comfort zone and I have enjoyed every second. I’ve been involved in various activities and events at BADU and I have even sat for a digitally created portrait whilst being filmed. With BADU, I welcome any new and exciting challenges that come my way!”

Background


Des is a staple of the BADU community. A local resident, he first interacted with BADU when we were just coming out of the other end of a crazy two years during the global pandemic. Des was looking for that sense of belonging away from home that would allow him to become more sociable and meet new people. He immediately found his place by attending events and eventually putting himself forward to become a volunteer. You will often find Des enjoying a drink at the Badu Cafe soaking up the atmosphere and passing on that same warmth that attracted him to Badu.
