Subjects:Paul Blakey MBE is the founder of Street Angels, a project which, with the help of an amazing team of volunteers, has made a massive difference in over one hundred towns and cities across the UK and overseas. Founded in November 2005 the scheme has seen violent crime and sexual assaults reduce dramatically in many of the communities where the projects work. We have expanded our work to inside pubs and clubs, at music festivals, in communities and at train stations. Because of Paul's contribution to community safety he was awarded a MBE (Most Excellent Member of the British Empire) in the New Years Honours 2010 by Her Majesty the Queen.

To oversee the growth Paul set up CNI (Christian Nightlife Initiatives) Network in July 2008 which has become a leading voice for faith based projects working within the night-time economy. In 2014 Paul became a published author with the book "Street Angels - the amazing story from binge to better" which collates inspiring stories from across CNI Network. Paul is an assessor for the Queens Award for Voluntary Services and has set up various other initiatives such as #FaithAndPoliceTogether and #Do1NiceThing. Paul will talk about work on the streets, in nightclubs and at festivals in a humorous and engaging way.
