About The Writer
I've spent close to 10 years working with some of London's most extreme young offenders. Working with them tirelessly in trying to create real opportunities for them, while trying to bring stability to the chaos that can be their world at times. I don't even call this work, as this is something I love doing, and thankfully my passion for it has helped many of these young people into much brighter circumstances.
If you'd like for me to give a talk to your class in regards to the issues that surround these young people or require consultancy for dealing with these young people then please feel free to get in contact.
You can also buy my ebook Jerry for just 99p which gives an in-depth and thought provoking look into the chaos that can surround the lives of some young offenders please click here. Or to support my 4TY project where we work creatively with these young people using music please click here
