Lead Service Manager in Barking and Dagenham

Hello my name is David Hibbert. I have been involved with Build on Belief since 2011. At first I came to what was then called the “Service Users Drug Reference Group” at 321 Portobello Road, where there was a busy peer-run weekend service. I wasn’t sure at first what I thought about it and for a while, I remained unsure.  

After some time accessing the SUDRG weekend service I started to engage with the Art Workshop and was able to turn the sentence “I can’t” into “I can” as I began to draw and paint. This was the start of a colourful and creative journey. I then had an interview and started volunteering and I worked my way up to Shadow Team Leader. After an enthusiastic few months I worked my way up to Team Leader.

After that I went for one of the manager’s post in Newham and was successful in getting the job. I enjoyed my time in Newham and could grow a lot through this experience. When I got the opportunity to apply for the lead manager position in Barking & Dagenham another exciting chapter in my work life started. Please come along! 

Build on Belief shows that people can change and literally ‘build on belief'!
