Graham is a System Change Practitioner within the Fulfilling Lives programme.
Prior to working at Fulfilling Lives, Graham worked as a Multiple Exclusion Worker with Changing Lives, working with clients with multiple complex needs, primarily with people who were homeless. This role included going out on the streets of Newcastle on early mornings and late nights looking for people who were sleeping rough on the streets and using the skills and training given to look at getting clients accommodated and also dealing with their issues, i.e. drugs/alcohol/ mental health or offending.
Graham also has experience of working in one of the main direct hostels in Newcastle as a nightshift worker, making sure the clients are safe whilst maintaining a high level of support. Graham also has over 20 years of lived experience and finds this helps him massively in his current role.
