Eugene Ebrill

Hello,my name is Eugene Ebrill and I am one of the service managers for the weekend Build On Belief service at Newham. I first got involved with BoB when it was known as the Service Users Drug Reference Group at Portobello Road over six years ago. After a short while as a service user I started to volunteer as it was an amazing service that made me feel part of something positive and also gave me a purpose and structure in my life. Later I was encouraged to become a facilitator for the music group which I really enjoyed and that allowed me to eventually develop a career in the field of Recovery.

I applied successfully for the post of service manager at the Newham project and it is an exciting challenge for myself to help develop the service as well as helping and training new volunteers to begin their own journeys towards recovery, inclusion and independence as it did so effectively for me.
