“This has changed how we view situations”

Gordon Glean has been head of security for Lewisham Shopping Centre for over 20 years

Gordon Glean

He signed the centre up as a Safe Haven in 2010 and in 2016 he was awarded a Police and Security award from the Metropolitan Police for his dedication to the community in Lewisham.

“I think For Jimmy has been doing a fantastic job integrating all of the different organisations that are involved in social justice. Prior to Safe Havens, our approach to security in Lewisham Shopping Centre did not take into account that a young person running may, in fact, be in some form of danger. This has changed how we view situations and has meant the relationship with young people and the security team has improved drastically.”
