Karen Grove
Specialist Support Worker

I have been in recovery from alcohol abuse for five years. I had been fighting my addiction for many years and had lost my way in life.  I started to volunteer as a peer mentor and was training to become a recovery coach with CGL which I really enjoyed.

In 2018, I was given the opportunity to start working for Lindale Recovery as a support worker. I then started full time employment and was promoted to senior support worker in 2020.

I have completed a level 2 in Health and Social Care and will soon start my level 3.

My confidence, personally, professionally and academically, has grown so much with the support of my partner, family and work colleagues.

I am very passionate about my job, helping others to heal themselves and empowering them to find their own path in recovery. Importantly, I’ve learnt so much about how to support myself. I feel happy again. Just one day at a time.

"My mantra is that we don’t let our past dictate our futures. I believe hard work and perseverance will always deliver us to a place where we are able to embrace life in all its glory"
