"As a recovery champion I’m the visual face of recovery and I help put people at ease. I was a service user myself for 29 years. My background means I can empathise with service users, I know most of them here and they respect me because I’ve been in their shoes. I love taking groups and challenging the clients. It’s great being able to help people and see them change. I’d like to take the next step at CGL now – I’m ready for my next challenge."
