My name is Kenny Brown and I'm the Service Manager here at Steps2Recovery; I consider this to be the pinnacle of my career. For the previous 14 years I worked for Kairos Community Trust, initially as a volunteer then as a support worker and was ultimately appointed Service Manager in 2019. I played a key role in the establishment of Second Chance, a team of staff and peers dedicated to working with addicts in the prison system who wanted to change. In fact it’s my own personal experience of the Criminal Justice System that drives my passion for working in the recovery field, in particular with ex offenders who have a desire to change. I firmly believe that given the correct support and guidance anyone can change, if they truly want to. I had no hobbies or interests, but I'm now an accomplished bee keeper, I never saw that coming!
