Chair of the Board of Trustees

Charles has worked in the Criminal Justice System for 25 years, and regularly represents clients caught up in police stations, courts and prisons due to criminal activity fuelled by drug and alcohol misuse. He has long recognised that there needs to be a different way of dealing with those individuals who are ready to make the changes necessary to get into recovery. On a daily basis, Charles sees the break-up of families, personal distress to the public and waste of public funds caused by the lack of a solution to move substance misusers away from crime.
