Online Facilitator

My name is Simon, and I am one of the newest members of staff in the BoB family.

I come from a background in Bioscience and Music, as well as Recovery.

I have been in recovery for a little shy of five years, and working for BoB is the culmination of me working to finally sort my life out and live up to my potential.

My life has taken me to three continents, various jobs, from Lab Assistant to Warehouse Operative.

My educational training is in Evolutionary Biology, but I spent the majority of my time at university being a community DJ, playing guitar and talking to the art students.

Like many in recovery I always felt that I didn’t fit in to the world at large, and this combined with mental health issues, meant I was often an outsider, but finally at BoB I have found somewhere that I can use all my skills and be of benefit not only to myself, but more importantly to others.

My BoB journey began with volunteering, in 2019, but I feel apart in the most recent lockdown, however, once I had returned to my role as volunteer and really opened up to the staff at my local service about all I had been through and what my struggles were, they were able to help me to help myself and in just five months I have gone from a relapse to a part-time member of staff.
