Our Staff

Nicki Jordan –Manager

I have had the privilege of managing Turas since January 2018. After completing a business degree I undertook a Masters in Ethnic and Racial Studies which steered me towards the not-for-profit sector.  For the last 16 years I have since managed projects across homelessness, addiction and bereavement.  I am passionate about influencing social change and empowering people to have the confidence to advocate for their own rights. My areas of particular interested include outdoor therapy and systems thinking in relation to organisations. 

When not at work I love sea swimming, organic gardening and socialising!


Alan Duff – Clinical Manager

I first joined Turas in 2015 and in 2018 I was very proud to become the Clinical Manager. I have degrees in Psychology, Counselling & Psychotherapy and a Masters in Addiction Studies. Most importantly though, I am devoted to supporting all those who walk through the doors of Turas in their journey to sobriety. I take great pride in learning and developing new ways of supporting those who need it. Community is very important to me and when we all work together we can achieve great outcomes.

Outside work I like to cycle, cook, and walk. Since COVID I have become an avid lover of all things DIY

Frank Fitzpatrick – Project Worker

I have extensive and a wide experience of working with clients that have addiction related issues in a variety of settings such as homeless hostels, street outreach and community settings both
here and in London.
I have a special interest in Motivational Interviewing which is an evidence based intervention for behaviour change and I am a member of MINT (Motivational Interviewing Network of Trainers)



Lee O’Neill – Project Worker

Lee works as project support worker at Turas. I enjoy working with clients to support their recovery through a person-centred approach
and witness the change unfolding with clients. It is powerful.  Change can happen.
