Head of Inclusion
I started my career as an administrator for Lambeth in the Pensions department in International House Brixton updating thousands of pensions ledgers!
Head of Inclusion:
A bit about Danny Hames
I have 18 years’ experience working in the public and voluntary sectors, within criminal justice, health and the drug and alcohol treatment sector. I have worked as an Administrator, Practitioner, Operational Manager and Head of Development. In September 2018 I became the Head of Inclusion which is part of the Midlands NHS Foundation Partnership Trust. Inclusion is the largest NHS provider of drug and alcohol services in England working in both prisons and the community. Inclusion also provides Sexual Health and Improving Access to Psychological Therapy services, Recovery College and employment services. Danny is an accredited PRINCE2 and MSP Practitioner and holds a PG Certificate in Drug and Alcohol Policy and a MA in Voluntary Sector Studies. I was a founding member and Chair of the NHS Addiction Provider Alliance which was founded in 2016 a collaboration of fifteen NHS trusts who provide drug and alcohol treatment services across England. I feel fortunate work for the NHS and to have a role which I greatly enjoy. I aim to make a positive contribution for all those who use our services. As someone who was brought up in social housing, received free school meals and has been personally affected by the impact of addiction at a young age and throughout my life I am determined that Inclusion fulfils the its positive purpose with the people who I am lucky to work with - both colleagues and service users.
