Young Person's Outreach Worker - since March 2016
What I do
I'm the Time 2 Project Worker for Scarborough and Ryedale. I work with young people at medium to high risk of sexual exploitation, through bespoke one to one support. Our sessions cover a wide range of subject areas, from recognising and managing risk to making informed and safe choices about relationships and staying safe online and emotional wellbeing.
What I did before
I recently qualified with a Masters Degree in Social Work. I 've worked with Care Leavers and also with adults with learning disabilities in previous roles. Prior to this I was a professional actor, in Canada and the UK, including on shows like Les Miserables and Fame.
A little bit about me
I have a lovely wife and 3 young boys who keep me very busy and happy. I'm also an avid ice hockey fan(being Canadian he?) and I play in goal for the Kingston City Knights hockey team.
