I am the patron of PROSPEX, a charity based in a very deprived area of North London.

The aim of the charity is to support the Young People with whom we come into contact, in all aspects of their lives in a non judgmental manner regardless of culture, gender or creed; to empower these Young People to realise their own true capability and worth in the world. We encourage them to build new aspirations outside the limits of their existing thinking, broaden their horizons and support them to fulfil their true potential. At a national level we aim to develop a nationally recognised and holistic approach to the development of Young People: www.prospex.org.uk
