Robin - The Man

Born 18.02.1976 to Robin and Sylvia (deceased) in Leicester , UK . Adopted by Diane (mum) at 6 years of age. Brother to Kristie, Paul, Simon, Peter and Jemma.

Sadly, Robin, died in his suddenly, on Sunday 02.10.16 @12.22am, in Wembley, London.

This was totally unexpected and a complete shock .

Robin had be successful in recovery for over seven years, beginning his journey at StreetScene in Bournemouth.

Robin dedicated his working life to helping recovering addicts and their families. He was head of Drug and Alcohol Services at Spectrum, in Camden, London.

He was the Learning Disability Champion at CGL Recovery, Hatfield.

Awarded the Purple Star for his dedication and commitment to offering a high standard quality of care for all of the service users .

As a devoted Leicester City Football Fan, Robin had a huge tattoo of the city emblem on his midriff ! Which he suffered great physical pain to perfect.

One of his main loves was dogs. My sister and I would teasingly refer to him as "The Dog Whisperer".

A Kind, Caring and Conscientious man, Robin was a very loving person whom believed in old fashioned values and morals, such as integrity, compassion and loyalty.

Never afraid to say what he thought, Robin had the courage to stand by his convictions, even if that meant standing alone.

Quick to help out, if he could, Robin was always there in times of crisis and would offer comfort , support and help until a solution was achieved . Tenacious , practical and thoughtful, Robin would be resolute until the end .

A cheeky grin, with a wicked sense of humour, Robin had the ability to always lighten the mood, make you smile and uplift your spirits.

He is a larger than life character , whose personality and presence will be greatly missed, he leaves a huge hole in the lives and hearts of all of us, who were lucky enough and indeed honoured, to have been a part of his lifes journey.

May He Rest In Peace and Love.

His death is being used to raise awareness of drug addiction, overdose awareness and suicide prevention (all causes personal to Robin) and raise money for Streetscene.(Bournemouth) and Change, Grow, Live (CGL) Recovery Services.

The Purple Star Promise

The Purple Star is a logo made by the Health Liaison Team, part of Health and Community Services, together with people with learning disabilities, their carers and The University of Hertfordshire’s Business School.

It is awarded to health services like doctors, dentists, pharmacies, opticians and clinics who give people with learning disabilities a really good service. This includes drug and alcohol recovery services.

For the Purple Star award, a health service provides the best service to people with learning disabilities by: 

  • Offering an excellent service
  • Recognising individuals who may need ‘reasonable adjustments’
  • Using the Purple Folder
  • Appointing a Learning Disability Champion
  • Giving expert help and advice
  • ‘TEACH’ learning disability training for all our staff
  • Working in partnership with others to support individuals
  • Producing accessible information, signage and displays
  • Ensuring an accessible environment
  • Being alert to safeguarding concerns and reporting them 

Spectrum in Hatfield is the first project with change, grow, live (CGL) to agree to work for the Purple Star award.

** Robin Ali, the Spectrum Hatfield Learning Disability Champion ** says:

“This means the drug and alcohol recovery service in Hatfield is making the changes to meet the needs of people with learning disabilities.

We want to be the flagship project in our area for the Purple Star. And we want to spread these changes to all our services across Hertfordshire.

We are working closely with the Purple Star Project Team to provide a great drug and alcohol service for people with learning disabilities on their journey to recovery from addiction.”
