HELLO I'M...

Mark, aged 54, but most people call me Edge or Edgie

JOB TITLE...

Volunteer Recovery Worker (Cambridgeshire)

I LIKE...

The feeling of working with an individual and making a positive difference to their lives. In many cases they see you as their ‘last and only hope’.

I DISLIKE...

The way society stereotypes people with drug and alcohol problems. Most people look at the issues/problems that the dependency causes, what they should really be doing is getting to the root of the problem and looking at the issues that caused the dependency in the first place!

MY GREATEST ACHIEVEMENT...

I really enjoy making Drug & Alcohol Awareness presentations to ‘public services’ and also the general public too. By making these presentations I feel I am educating people and hopefully making them aware of the actual facts rather than the misguided stereotypical opinions they’ve grown up with. I believe this can only be good for both Inclusion and all their clients.

I AM LOOKING FORWARD TO...

Continuing to help Inclusion and their clients to tackle ‘Substance Misuse’ issues within my home county of Cambridgeshire.
