About Andy Winter

I have worked for Brighton Housing Trust since 1985, initially as a residential support worker before becoming manager of our residential alcohol, drug and mental health services.  Between 1996 and 2000 I undertook original research into drug related deaths in Brighton and Hove.

I was a local councillor in the late 1980’s and chaired Brighton Council’s Licensing Committee. In partnership with Sussex Police, we oversaw a reduction in alcohol-related violence in clubs and pubs.  I remain concerned about the impact alcohol misuse and drug addiction has on the lives of individuals and their families, as well as on the economy of the City.

Since 2003 I have been the chief executive of BHT. In the years to come I want to see the quality and impact of what we do reach new levels.

Away from work I have a passion for cricket and rugby, and have been a member of the Sussex County Cricket Club for many years. In addition to blogging, I tweet at @AndyWinterBHT and rather surprisingly, I am a Fellow of the Royal Society of Arts.

  2. I’m a student from Vienna and I would be interested to build a 3×2 container home unit for student’s and I like your design. Is it possible to somehow get the building plans with all the construction details?

    Best Regards
