Meet Trevor, one of our exceptional team members at Assist Community Services, whose passion for making a positive impact is as diverse as his interests. In his downtime, Trevor immerses himself in collecting records and WW2 relics, maintains a healthy lifestyle at the gym, and finds joy in the world of movies.
Trevor's professional journey is just as fascinating as his hobbies. With a remarkable 35-year career as a chef, he decided to take a leap into support work for a more flexible lifestyle.

When asked about advice for those contemplating a career in this industry, Trevor's response is simple yet powerful: "Just do it." This mantra, he shares, has become a guiding principle that he imparts to others regularly.
Describing his typical day at work, Trevor challenges the conventional notion of it being a job. For him, every day is an opportunity to spend time with and assist wonderful individuals in living their best lives. It's not work; it's a fulfilling experience.
Reflecting on life, Trevor shares the best advice he's ever received: "It's better to regret something you have done, rather than regret something you've never done." This philosophy encapsulates his approach to embracing opportunities and living life to the fullest.
Delving into Trevor's lighter side, he reveals a surprising fun fact – he loves engaging in dumb dares. Recalling a memorable instance, he and his mates found dresses at a local thrift store and donned them at a party, turning heads in a playful and lighthearted celebration of camaraderie.
