My name is Mick Harrison I am a director and co-founder of Inspiring Community. I have been a youth worker since 2005.  I studied BA Hons in Youth and Community Development at Leeds Metropolitan University. I worked for Wakefield council youth services as a youth and community development worker.  My experience includes working with vulnerable young people who were not in education, employment or training and disadvantaged through location and poverty in settings including generic youth work, intensive alternative to education and employment support.
