Joe started at LPW in 2015 as an Engagement Worker within LPW Independent School. After a year and a half he moved on from the school to focus on his passion for working out in the community, and spent eight months as an Engagement Worker based in Lockleaze, North Bristol, delivering one to one support and targeted group work to the young people there.
When a role came up as a Lead Engagement Worker in the inner city, Joe felt compelled to apply as it would allow him to work in the area of Bristol he grew up in. This role has given him increased responsibility and influence over important decisions within the organisation and means he supports both his Team Manager and the Youth Engagement Workers who report in to him.
As a Lead Engagement Worker Joe currently leads on the ROUTES partnership with Barnardo’s and also works closely with the Gypsy Roma Traveller community, delivering targeted sessions.
‘My favourite part of working for LPW is the work I get to do for the local community. It’s the sort of work that makes a meaningful, measurable difference; you can clearly see this from the outcomes we are achieving and the feedback we get, both from members of the community, and the other agencies we partner with.’
