Event description
An evening of conversation between two friends about Race, Justice and Mental Health.

About this Event

When Patrick first moved to Peckham, Les was his mentor. They have now been friends for 25 years.

JOIN US FOR THE BIG CONVERSATION, listen to friends taking about their different backgrounds, different education, different journeys but with same heart.

Rev Les Isaac OBE

Les is the founder and CEO of Ascension Trust. He pioneered Street Pastors in the UK in 2003. On that first night, 18 volunteers took to the streets of Brixton, London, and since then this initiative has grown to encompass a network of volunteers who engage with people on the streets to care for them, listen to them and help them. To date, Ascension Trust has trained over 14,000 volunteers and has approximately 280 initiatives in the UK as well as projects in several countries around the world. In recognition of the contribution that Les has made to society he was awarded an OBE by her Majesty the Queen and has recently been appointed as an honorary Ecumenical Canon at Southwark Cathedral.

Patrick Regan OBE

Patrick is CEO and co-founder of Kintsugi Hope which came about following a series of personal trials and ill health affecting Patrick and his family. Prior to that, Patrick led urban youth charity, XLP which he also founded in 1996 and ran for 21 years.

Patrick has travelled to over thirty countries working with and on behalf of the poorest communities and is a regular contributor on radio and TV on issues of poverty and justice. He received the Mayor of London Peace Award in 2010 for his valuable contribution towards peace and justice and was also awarded an OBE from her Majesty the Queen for services to young people.

Patrick is a passionate communicator and equally at home on the main stage at major UK political party conferences, engaging in robust debates in the media, connecting with business and community leaders, speaking to inmates in a maximum security prison or gang leaders in Jamaica.

He is the author of five books. In this latest book, “Honesty Over Silence”, Patrick opens his heart on very personal issues, while exploring the importance of holding onto our faith and God in challenging times.

Kintsugi Hope

Kintsugi Hope wants to see a world where mental and emotional health is understood and accepted, with safe and supportive communities for everyone to grow and flourish. Kintsugi Hope was founded by Diane and Patrick Regan OBE after a series of operations and events that took them to the brink; physically, mentally, emotionally and spiritually. They faced illness and loss in their family and community.

Kintsugi Hope is not just a charity. We have a vision of starting a movement of Kintsugi Hope Groups where people can experience:

  • Safety and support where there is no shame and embarrassment in struggling
  • An increase in self-worth, confidence and wellbeing
  • A deeper understanding of the reality of God’s love for them
  • Clear pathways to receive additional support if needed.

Ascension Trust

Ascension Trust is working to meet the practical needs of communities: at a strategic level through weapons bins in UK cities or through training for young girls in Ghana or through street pastors who are part of safety partnerships in the night-time economy.
