Community & Youth Work
Winston fell into a career working with children and young people when he was just a teenager himself. Inspired at a youth club led by one of London’s major charitable housing trusts, he quickly developed a deep passion for youth work. This resolve stuck with him for over 20 years during which he has worked with various educational establishments, youth services and youth justice organisations. As a qualified practitioner in the youth work & criminal justice sector he provides specialist support to young people across London.
Aside from youth and community work and overseeing his own registered charity Juvenis, a future where all young people have more than once chance to fulfil their potential; hence his commitment to Apple & Pears. He is also a Trustee for Brixton Soup Kitchen (a service for the homeless) and Block Workout Foundation (a street gym initiative which supports young people through free community workouts and mentoring), Head of Partnerships for Spirit Of London Awards (SOLA) which showcases the achievements and community spirit of London’s young people.
In his spare time he sponsors a number of community events that specialize in supporting young talent such as Peckham BMX Club, Urban Entertainment Awards, Black Youth Achievement Awards and Rocking Ur Teens.
