Jo is a Community Coordinator at New Kingshold Community centre. Her role involves working on a 1:1 basis with Hackney residents to create an Action Plan to enable them to improve some aspect of their health behaviour.
Jo has lived in Hackney for over 20 years and has a good knowledge of the local area. She has always worked in community settings and has previously been a play worker and mentor. In her precious spare time Jo DJ's on a radio show once a month called Reel Rebels radio, a local community station, and runs a club night with a group of fellow DJ's called 'Mind the Gap', addressing the need of older people wanting to dance - too old for Dalston too young for Wetherspoon’s! The money raised on the door is donated to local causes.
Jo began working for the Shoreditch Trust in January 2015 and is passionate about the Trust’s commitment to addressing social inequality.
