As Urban Saints work towards our strategy for 2020, we are committed to be at the leading edge of inclusion and wellbeing for children and young people in the UK and Ireland. We are passionate about inspiring, equipping and enabling children's and youth leaders to include everyone, whatever their ability, in all that they do.
Mark Arnold is Urban Saints' Additional Needs Ministry Director, and leads the work we are doing in this area.
Mark has over 20 years of youth work experience and is the father of James, a boy with Autism.
In April 2017 Mark joined Premier's Ruth and Jamie for an episode of The Youth and Children's Work Podcast. Listen here.
