James Millwater

My name is James and I am the current team leader of the Manchester StreetDoctors team. This is my fourth year as a StreetDoctors volunteer, and I have moved into the role of team leader after a year as deputy team lead. I am currently taking a year out of medicine to study for a masters in Humanitarianism and conflict response and decided it was the perfect time to become more involved in a charity which has become really important to me throughout my time as a volunteer.

Whilst I come from a background where youth violence isn’t the norm, I recognise its increasing normalisation amongst young people, and I believe that the work StreetDoctor’s does is an important part of the solution to this.
