Benjamin Morely Support Worker/ Re-integration Manager
I’m a passionate and motivated individual with a zest for life. As I’m a recovering addict myself; Riverside empowers me to be able to ‘give back’ and educate the residents as to the serious nature of the disease of addiction. I love to incorporate my skills as a drama teacher of 10 years and relate to the clients on a more personable level. This in turn instills a sense of confidence and self-belief that they never knew existed. When we change the way we look at things, the things we look at change.
