By talking openly with children about their feelings, and getting help, we can do our best to ensure that small problems don't grow with the child, and become more serious when they are adults. One of the most important life skills we teach our children is knowing when to ask for help.
Organisations such as Place2Be help to make sure that children receive the support they need.
I work as a consultant at PwC, based in London, where I'm particularly interested in local government, social media and digital technology.
I was proudly elected as District Councillor for the Bocking Blackwater ward of Braintree District Council in May 2011 where I currently serve on the Governance Committee, Member Development Group and chair the Youth Strategy Group and was nominated for the Digital Councillor of the year award by the LGiU.
In August 2014 I was elected as Deputy Chairman (Political) of Conservative Future, the under 30's wing of the Conservative Party, nationally.
A little while ago I set up something called Braintree Hour followed by Chelmsford Hour, they’ve grown quite big now and have been an interesting experiment in how businesses can connect with each other online. I've held real world networking events on the back of these which have been well received.
