Anthony's school program and presentations particularly speak to key stage 3 & 4 of the national curriculum in law, justice, citizenship, english, drama and social responsibility. He also works with Social Services, Youth Offending Service (YOT/YOIs and with young people in secure units.
The programmes AGP deliver include goal setting and the promotion of positive aspirations. This is done by dispelling myths that make deviance attractive and highlighting the consequences to action.
Anthony shares his lived experiences in a variety of talks that inspire and motivate. Audiences have included university students, young people in young offenders institutions, corporate audiences and the general public.
Anthony creates personalised one to one sessions based upon the needs and interests of the individual young person. These sessions allow young people who are considered to be the hardest to reach, to fulfil their potential with individualised support.
Corporate partners that Anthony works with include Manchester City Football Club (Kicks programme), Mercedes-Benz Apprenticeship Academy, ESRC European Social Research Council and Lancaster University.
Anthony has worked on a number of media projects, including documentaries about knife crime. Most notably Anthony shared his story on C4's 'What makes a murder?' and maintains a close relationship with its creators at UnderworldTV.
