Tom Elliot's JoyRide Podcast this week features Paul Blakey MBE - press play to listen:
Paul Blakey MBE is the founder of Halifax Street Angels, the International CNI Network, author, broadcaster, communicator and popular speaker.
Paul and his wife, Jean launched Halifax Street Angels in November 2005 a project which, with the help of an amazing team of volunteers, has made a massive difference in Halifax and over one hundred and thirty towns and cities across the UK and beyond. Street Angels has contributed to a reduction in violent crime and sexual assaults in many of the towns where the scheme operates and has contributed to a national annual reduction in alcohol related violence and A&E admissions. Because of Paul’s contribution to community safety in Calderdale he was awarded a MBE (Most Excellent Member of the British Empire) in the New Years Honours 2010 by Her Majesty the Queen.
