Challenging Public Bodies
In 2012 I instigated what turned out to be a monumental and tireless campaign against two local authority Children's Services departments, each found to be negligent in their respective duty of care towards a vulnerable young person who I cared for.
After beginning a regular commute in 2017, on what was & remains to be, incredibly poor public transport, affecting my physical and mental health and influencing the decisions I made about where I could live and work, I decided enough was enough.
I started Reach For Social Justice (Reach4ward) because the small town in which I was born and raised, I no longer recognised as home. It is an affluent, illustrious, and unique town, and to some degree it is very welcoming, but much of its greatness ignores the reality of its struggles. I decided change was needed.
