Joe will add value to the Board by sharing knowledge on emerging national policy and research within CCE and serious youth violence - both from his work at Crest and also as a delivery partner within the DfE Child Exploitation Support Programme. Having commissioned services within local government as a Cabinet member in Islington and conducted research into serious youth violence and exploitation, he will help refine the SHIFT model, use his networks to help promote SHIFT and make sure SHIFT is plugged into all relevant national debates about CCE and violence.
