Service Support Supervisor for the Build on Belief project in Barking & Dagenham

Hello, my name is Michelle Heath.


I have always had a passion for supporting individuals, I studied Social Care in College and I absolutely loved becoming a Support Worker, first supporting adults with learning disabilities.

After some time, my alcohol addiction became out of control, and I knew I had to make big changes as I was in and out of hospital countless times.

I began accessing Build on Belief as a service user in 2022 and started to rebuild my relationship with my family, which I am so grateful for. Soon after that I began volunteering at BoB, then made the move to volunteer team leader.

When the position of Service Support Supervisor came up, I knew I had to give myself a chance by applying for the position and thankfully, I got the job. I love working alongside a non-judgemental and compassionate team. Going into work knowing that and with a friendly smile and my listening skills I can help change and improve the course of our service user’s week or even support them in finding their self-worth again, which is priceless.

Build on Belief has given me the belief in myself, and I've also seen other individuals start believing in themselves, just like I have done. 

I am now looking forward to supporting even more people at BoB.
