Julie has over 20 years’ experience regarding intervention and prevention of vulnerable families in the UK. She trained as a Domestic Violence Crisis Counsellor in New York for Brooklyn Criminal Court and Sanctuary for Families in the South Bronx providing Court Support, Emergency Housing Protection Orders and Safety Plans.
She returned to London and became a qualified mediator for CALM, that provides solutions to conflict resolution for social housing neighbours in dispute. To ensure the empowerment of vulnerable families, she quickly became involved in community development; running large Housing Associations outreach programmes entitled ‘Life’s Better Together’. This included homework and art clubs, summer sports camps in local schools with volunteers and in partnership with Wandsworth Teenage Pregnancy Unit to provide short, sharp, intensive training workshops for teenage mums. She then moved into the youth offending world, coordinating Youth Inclusion Projects (YIPS) on behalf of Crime Concern, with large staff teams providing outreach services to prolific young offenders. She then progressed to oversee Lambeth Youth Council, providing strategic and operational co-ordination of all young peoples’ services across the Borough including Peer Inspection, Peer Education and Youth Parliament.
