Lead Manager in Harrow


My name is Karen and I am Lead Manager at the BoB/VIA Drop-In at Harrow.

My journey started with BoB in Oct 2019, I volunteered at the Shine Café at Turnpike Lane. I obtained a Food and Hygiene Cert and was able to cook and was shown how to become a Barista, hence running the Café one full day a week.

My background with my recovery has been with AA and I am clean and sober for the past 10.5 years.

Moving on, I have worked as a Support Worker in Hostels for homeless people, was a Service Manager at NPH, Social Prescriber at Bentley House and now I run the community Drop-In at Harrow.

I believe that our Drop-In services can enhance recovery with substance use by connection, creativity and becoming part of a team as either Volunteer or moving on to Team Leader.

Our BoB Drop In promotes healthy ethics and activities like teamwork, arts, sports, games and reading. We have a new garden project at Harrow, and all is going well. We offer a safe haven for one and all. We have a monthly outing re ‘Culture and Sights’ and many weekly groups which are well attended.

I am very happy to be part of the working team at BoB.
