One of my frustrations working in the substance misuse field for all these years has been the lack of non-treatment support, in particular after-care; but also non-therapeutic support for people, whether in treatment or not. Recently working for Public Health England as the Service User Involvement lead I was thrilled and impressed to see a lot of service user/peer-led services around the country. While doing this work I met Tim and visited Build on Belief.Prior to this I have worked in front line services, starting at City Roads and finishing at CGL with a lot of non-statutory and statutory service in between.
I have also worked on the strategic side, I was the first Lambeth Drug and Alcohol Action Team coordinator, and have been a commissioning manager in South and East London.
I am excited to be here, this is where my heart is and so far I have not been disappointed, on the contrary I have been impressed and inspired.
