Youth and Schools Worker
Shaina recently joined our team as our Youth and Schools worker all the way from Canada! She first visited the island back in 2018 and fell in love with it, so much so that she told herself she was going to live here one day! Shaina has a real heart for young people and has a big love for travelling the world! Keep a look out for Shaina in the school over the coming months. She will be available to meet and would love to chat with you at any time.
Youth Support Worker
Kirsty has joined us as our Youth Support worker!
Lawrence works as our Drop-in Support worker for those who attend our adult recovery drop in. He is a familiar friendly face for all those who attend The Well. He knows first-hand the benefits of recovery support and uses his experience to help others along the way. Laurence is a man with a heart to reach out to those around him. He is such an asset to our team, we would be lost without him!
Christiane is a relationship counsellor that came on board as a volunteer to start up the Ark drop-in in 2017. Together with a small team of dedicated women who all bring vital expertise regarding addiction issues, she is committed to providing a safe and supportive space for women in recovery. It is her heart to see these women grow in confidence, feeling respected, included, and connected again within the community.
