Josh Babarinde OBE, a local Eastbourne social entrepreneur, has recently been recognised, in the Queen’s Honours, for his work with disaffected young people in East London.
Cracked It is an award winning technology business that has supported more than 200 ex-offenders away from crime and towards employment.
The Smartphone repair services supports these youngsters in developing their skills, enabling them to take responsibility, realise their potential and take their first steps towards the labour market.
Josh was born and bred down here and during the lockdown he has launched a scheme to provide free video phones to Eastbourne’s care home residents … so they can stay connected with their families and see their doctors online.
He has also led the Liberal Democrats (one of our main political parties) to establish a campaign to telephone over 5,000 elderly residents in his home town (Eastbourne) during the lockdown.
We are lucky to have such a local achiever in these times … his focus has always been to ‘roll up his sleeves’ to achieve the best for his community and small business enterprises he has established in East London, and here in Eastbourne.
Covid has changed the world - and we must change with it. That’s why we’re devoting all of our resources to incubating new projects to seed systemic change beyond the lifetime of Cracked It.
