Since starting his journey Stephen has been presented with several awards in recognition of the work he does.
He always states he doesn’t do what he does for awards and says the inner pride of making a difference is satisfaction enough, however he happily acknowledges and appreciates any that come his way. Significantly, he sees them as providing a platform to help more people from and hopes that his achievements inspire others to achieve great things.
