If a person can be judged by how much he is loved by others, then Waldo Roeg is clearly one of the greats. 30 colleagues across the Trust turned up today to say Happy Retirement to one of the founder members of the Recovery College and champion of Peer Support. 


The impact of Waldo in the set-up of the Recovery College and the roll out of Peer Support Workers across the Trust will be felt by all of us for years to come.

Waldo’s legacy is inspiring people by uplifting them to know their recovery and personal experience is the key to their success. 

Kayleigh Reid, Deputy Peer Support Lead, said, “Waldo is the coolest person I know” - a sentiment echoed by all who waved him a fond farewell.

So what’s next? Waldo is fascinated with time, from the philosophy and science of time to watches and clocks. He owns 30 watches, countless clocks and pocket watches. Next week he will be off to Geneva to attend Watches and Wonders and will be taking the time (pardon the pun) by becoming a watch maker and finishing up his second hand made watch.

Waldo you will be very missed and thank you for all that you have done, especially for the people who use our services.
