Joe specialises in anti-bullying, children's social care, mental health, and safeguarding. Joe is fully aware of the devastating impact bullying can cause, and that recovery is a journey. From a young age, Joe was bullied, assaulted and isolated.
Joe has volunteered for national organisations such as the British Medical Association, The National Council for Voluntary Youth Services and The British Youth Council. At the age of 13, Joe set up the 'Speak Up, Speak Out’ campaign with support from James Arthur and Sinitta Malone. The campaign went global. Joe campaigned to change mental health services and implement better ways to help children and young people stand up and speak out against bullying.
In partnership with the Home Office, Joe developed a supportive disclosure toolkit to help those with Autism and other additional learning needs to better communicate what was going on if they were experiencing bullying.
