  • As someone whose roots are embedded in a community development tradition that had a focus on young people; and, with a mother who was an archetypal 'community baron', with a huge sense of social justice in post-war Britain, that nurtured my passion for these things, this just took me back to all those things I hold dear! Thank you Bill for re-livening some of my deepest held values and beliefs!
