Senior Manager

Hello, my name is Ricky, and I recently took on the role of senior Manager, after the previous house manager retired in September 2020. My working career in this specific sector began back in January 2015 where I was trained as a support worker/ life coach, assisting men and woman during detox stages, to transitioning and successfully completing a rehabilitation program, this was where my passion and purpose began.

In my personal life, I have faced similar challenges of those people who I am now passionate and love to be an advocate for within this field of work.

Back in April 2015 I decided to make a life changing decision to become a born-again Christian, this for me has been transformational.

MY role and responsibilities as the senior manager are to lead a successful team and manage the overall project. This role can be diverse, from engaging with one-to-one key working sessions with residents, to team meetings and staff appraisals, amongst liaising with the local authority, police, and other government settings.

The main purpose of my role is to help support the residents in any ways or means we can, this is often found with those who are suffering with addiction and mental health issues, this goes hand-in hand with homelessness and is an ever-growing concern within our community and surrounding areas.

Here in Adam Outreach Project, we believe recovery is possible, change is achievable, and the past does not always have to be the end story.

Together, we can assist and support these individuals to overcome their current issues and to create a safe pathway and find a solution.

It is an honour to work in our project and I look forward to the future of Adam Outreach Project and the lives we get to help transform.

I look forward to meeting you.


Support Worker

Hi, my name is Adam, and I am a support worker here at Hope House.

I am pleased to be part of a team that is helping vulnerable men find their place in society by regaining their identity through faith and being empowered to take action to face their past and recapture their future. I found myself in a vulnerable position due to turning away from my faith as a teenager. It took a safe environment and a re-kindled relationship with God to empower me to take the action required to regain my place in society as a friend, son, family member, colleague, and church member. To God be the Glory. I look forward to welcoming you here at Adam Outreach Project. 


Support Worker

Hi, I’m Kevin Young. I’m in recovery from addiction of alcohol/substance misuse, as I spent some time in a treatment centre where I gained the knowledge of the 12-Step Program. I’ve been in various jobs in my life and even spent 4 years in the British Army.

I came to Adam Outreach Project as a volunteer back in November 2020. I had the interest and the passion of helping others, as I have lived experience in addiction, homelessness, and mental health. I have progressed in my role as volunteer, In 2021 I became a full time employee as a trainee support worker using my lived experience. During my time I have become a support worker and passed Level 2 Safeguarding and my Care Certificate, and currently at the end of my Level 2 NVQ apprenticeship in Adult Health Care. I like to see residents meet their potential and move back into the community where they can live a productive life. I’m also a Christian and was baptised in 2021 with my newfound faith, I can share my experience with residents.

Chair of Trustees since the start of Adam Outreach Project, David is also trustee and treasurer of the charity Actios, which promotes Christian teaching in local schools.

He continues his long-running Chartered Accountancy practice in Cambridgeshire, has been a school governor for over 25 years and leads the ministry team at Littlehey Prison.

David also teaches the Sunday School at St Neots Evangelical Church, where he was formerly an elder, is a member of the Prom Praise choir and plays the clarinet.


Geoff was one of the founders of Adam Outreach Project, along with chair David Brown, who both shared a vision of ‘mending cracked and broken lives through the power of the Holy Spirit’.

Although he now lives in the Midlands, Geoff once owned a guest house in Lowestoft that gave a home to a troubled young man called Adam, who had been placed there by social services.

From the experience of supporting Adam, grew the sense of calling to work with homeless men and the charitable organisation that bears Adam’s name.

While there have been many changes to the line-up of staff and trustees since then, Geoff and David have continued to see the power of God changing lives and bringing many to a saving knowledge of Jesus Christ.


Terry was invited to the board of trustees in 2018 by a fellow church member, who was herself a trustee at that time.

Having retired in 2003, after a long career as a fishery biologist at Cefas in Lowestoft, he had studied psychodynamic counselling which he has been able to use to support the residents at Hope House.

Apart from being available as a counsellor, Terry is the trustee who meets new referrals to the house, as part of their application to become a resident.

Terry is a house group leader and youth worker at London Road Baptist Church in Lowestoft, where he was also a deacon for 30 years. He’s a member of Christian Surfers UK, and takes a keen interest in gardening, cooking and natural history.


Russell was born in London and made his confession of faith in the Lord Jesus Christ while at school. He has worked as an Accountant in Industry and Commerce for nearly all his career and has served in voluntary roles in a number of churches and charities. His involvement with recovery came through his daughter, Fiona, who despite a number of stays in rehab, sadly passed away in 2020. He is married to Elaine, an Assistant Head at a Primary School in London, and they have a grown-up son who lives near London.
