Mental Health Support Worker in Harrow

I am so happy and excited to be part of the BoB team, a member of staff! I have been working in Barking and Dagenham with Alia and my new team since April 6th 2021. I started my journey with Build on Belief as a volunteer over at the Shine Cafe in Turnpike Lane. I was the cook and ran the cafe-area, obviously fully trained up on the coffee machine! The managers, Kevin and Sofia helped me to engage with service users and find my feet as a volunteer. We held two beautiful events; The Christmas lunch and the Valentines ‘Coffee ‘n Cake’ morning which everybody loved.

It was a sad day when the project closed last summer; very sad indeed. A fortunate hooking up with Laurence introduced me to the Acorn hall weekend service and the lead manager, Liam. I have been volunteering weekends at the food bank and social club there since August 2020. My new tribe includes new mates and for a lone wolf like me this is a blessing, especially during lockdown, a chance to hook up for coffee and a catch up. As the year has progressed I like to do once a month at Acorn hall as I class this as my well-being, engaging with the team members and catching up.

I am in recovery and have been clean and sober for eight years & two months. I am very happy to be on this path and as luck would have it, I started a brand new journey as Mental Health Support Worker in the Northwick Park Hospital end of August. This will bring new challenges but I have worked within the NHS Service before as First Responder and PTS attendant /driver. I'm uber grateful for all the love and guidance shown by BoB Team, very grateful indeed.
