Name– Daniel Richardson

Role– Brief Intervention Officer (Burnie)

About me– I spent 23 years in the hospitality industry and I am a qualified Pastry Chef by trade. The hospitality industry is rife with AOD abuse and I have had a number of close friends that have succumbed to their addictions over the years. So last year I retrained and completed a Diploma in AOD and Mental Health in a bid to be able to make a difference in people’s lives and draw on my life experiences to hopefully help change a few lives for the better. I play and teach guitar in my spare time.

What are you most excited about for your new role – Working in ATODS is where my passion lies and I look forward to a long and productive career in this area working at YFCC.
