I am starting up my new business, offering management consultancy support to the voluntary, community and public sectors.  Although drug prevention is my most recent specialty – and before that drug treatment and public health/health promotion –  I now want also to use my broader expertise in health and social care and management. I am looking to work on strategic planning, project planning, organisational development and teambuilding, facilitation of groups, evaluation and fundraising.  I will continue to advise the UK Government as a member of the Advisory Council on the Misuse of Drugs. At the same time, I am beginning part-time study towards a PhD at the University of London, researching factors which develop resilience in socially-excluded young people.

My career experience has included working in the private, public and voluntary sectors. I spent 9 years as Chief Executive of Mentor UK, the charity which focusses on developing effective drug misuse prevention activities and before that I was Chief Executive of Angel Drug Services, a  London-based street drugs agency which provided a range of harm reduction services.

My Governmental and Inter-Governmental work has included leading for the UN’s Vienna NGO Committee on Narcotic Drugs on developing civic society’s engagement with the United Nations. I was twice elected Vice Chair of this Committee and wrote its Strategic Plan 09-2013. I was also elected three times as Chair of the English Drug Education Forum.

Previous work experience included Community Care planning and implementation and running local and international HIV/AIDS programmes.

Voluntary experience has included being a Trustee of Childhope UK and of Southern Housing Foundation and chairing Islington Community Health Council and Camden & Islington Local Community Advisory Group.

I am a Fellow of the Royal Society of Arts.

  1. I totally agree with what you said regarding our young today which should be addressing WHY they are taking any drug in the first place.
    Drug and alchol are becoming major issues in society as a whole.
    I have always worked on dont look at the behaviour or symptoms find the reason and you make the progress.

    I just wish you well.


  2. Hi Eric

    What about some pro bono work to start with? 🙂 I asked the Home Office for the resignation letters of your former colleauges as only yourself and one other chose to publish. Do you think that the others might give their consent to make their views known?

  3. Hi Eric,

    I am trying to contact you to arrange a meeting over coffee as I believe my current work could be of interest to you. I hope you remember me as I managed the Mentor Scotland Peer Education Alcohol Project. Really hope we can meet up.

    Kidn regards
