My name is Peter and I am the Outreach worker here at FAST. I am privileged to work with a team whom have years of experience in delivering services in the Finglas area.
My previous work experience was in a treatment centre for 13 months were I started to develop a hunger for learning, this kicked off with a level 6 in Psychotherapy which lead to me completing a level 7 in Addiction Studies in Maynooth University. On completion of this course I applied and was successfully accepted on to a level 8 in the same discipline. My hunger for learning continues.
In FAST we are currently developing our Outreach Service’s in line with harm reduction model, we do believe that there are many pathways to recovery and the starting point for some people is to be able to access harm reduction services.
I am really excited to see this develop and build on my own skill set of working in a community setting. I have a good understanding in terms of in providing information on addiction, accessing programmes and building recovery capital within the Finglas area.
