Stephen Reid


Stephen Reid : Chairman

Greetings, I'm Steve. I'm currently employed as a sexual health outreach worker with over ten years experience, working with mostly 11-25yr olds in Haringey and Greater London.
I'm also a mentor/youth worker and radio presenter.
I qualified as an electrician in 1983 but haven't touched a wire since the mid eighties.
I love sports, healthy eating, music and helping others.
I have been involved with BUBIC for nearly thirteen years. Their enthusiasm, determination and passion for their local community is equal to mine.
I am proud to be a board member.

She graduated from the University of East London with a Doctorate in Clinical Psychology. Dr Funke is a member of the BPS (British Psychological Society).
