Leon Roche has worked for 32 years in care services. From homelessness to youth crime, higher education to social care and training Leon understands the challenges of working with those described as ‘hard to reach’. Leon has worked with some of London’s most challenging young people and brings a fresh understanding of the skills required in working with families and young people.
