I believe the stigmatisation and criminalisation of people with problematic substance issues is a major impediment to them finding their own personal form of recovery. Dealing with these issues as a health issue – not a criminal one – greatly improves the lives of individuals and as is becoming increasingly obvious from the data, improves society as a whole.

 

I work with the board to support the outward facing Directors in an administrative and practical role, helping to build an organisation which will support our shared vision.
