Mark Morel

Peer Adviser, Neami National

Mark Morel Mark is currently employed by Neami National in the role of Peer Support Worker with The STEP program and also as a Peer Advisor with Way2Home in Darlinghurst, Sydney. From June 2013 until August 2016 Mark was sleeping rough in and around the CBD of Sydney. While initially a reluctant client of Way2Home Mark is now housed and is happy to have his life somewhere near back on track.

Mark is a strong advocate for social justice and seeing marginalised and disadvantaged people given the opportunity to change and improve their lives. Mark sees his new role(s) as an opportunity to be a part of an organisation that has encouraged and helped him find his feet in an industry that is far removed from his previous working/life experience. He is inspired by the people he works with both as a former client and now co-worker.
