Check out a winning entry to their Inspiring Voices digital media competition; where a group of young people from Doncaster wanted to tell the powers that be what they think about their area. They worked with a local organisation called Real to Reel to make this awesome film:

Make sure you follow Community Voices on Twitter to keep updated with their news and future funding opportunities.

Power to communities!

Croydon Week of Peace

Croydon Safer Partnership asked me to give a speech at the Croydon Week of Peace Launch event at the Town Hall.

It was a real honour to speak from the same podium as Reverend Nims Obunge, the Founder of the Peace Alliance.

I spoke about how my personal experiences have inspired me to set up 4WD and start working with young people to create pro-active solutions to social problems such as youth under-achievement, hostility and violence.

Check out the BBC’s article on the event and my interview HERE.
