Live With Award-Winning Public Figure Joe Plumb

Tonight we are joined by Award-Winning Public Figure Joe Plumb, Joe is an ambassador at Kidscape which provides children, families, carers and professionals with advice, training and practical tools to prevent bullying and protect young lives. He also writes for @MetroUk and is part of @ITV #BritainGetTalking

From a young age, Joe was bullied, assaulted and isolated. As a result of the bullying, Joe was admitted to a psychiatric unit in the UK after attempting to take his own life. At the age of 12, Joe got into volunteering at a specialist youth cafe devoted to young people with additional needs and who were getting into trouble. Joe continued to volunteer for National organisations such as the British Medical Association, The National Council for Voluntary Youth Services and The British Youth Council.

At the age of 13 Joe set up the ‘Speak Up, Speak Out’ campaign with support from James Arthur, Sinitta Malone and Richard Branson, the campaign went global.

Joe in partnership with the Home Office, developed a supportive disclosure toolkit to help those with Autism and other additional learning needs, better communicate what was going on if they were experiencing bullying.
