Service Manager for the Weekend Service in Harrow

My name is Sam and I am a Service Manager for Build on Belief (BOB) in Harrow. I am also a peer mentor at Rise in Ealing.

I have battled an addiction problem with alcohol and Class A drugs for over ten years which caused me many mental health problems.  I am now happy to say that I am nearly two years abstinent after completing residential rehab and a day programme. 

After I finished treatment I was unsure what I wanted to do with my life and was scared of falling back into my old lifestyle.  I started volunteering for BOB in Ealing and it did a lot for me.  It gave me a reason to get up in the morning and motivated me to want to work in the future.  I got to work alongside some amazing people and found volunteering to be really rewarding and interesting.  BOB is such a great organisation for service users and volunteers and I am so glad to be a part of it.  My favourite thing about BOB is constantly meeting new like-minded people who I get on with.
