The Late Bobby Martin Director of Operations, Crying Sons Ltd 

I have known Claudine Duberry as a professional for over 18yrs. We first met while working for different agencies in HMP & YOI Feltham. During this time Claudine always showed fairness and integrity both with the prisoners and HMPPS staff as well as having a good multi-agency approach with all civilian staff.

More recently Claudine although having extensive social work experience decided to upskill some of her knowledge so as to better support her local community in addressing serious youth violence and child exploitation. This course was run by Crying Son’s Ltd having been commissioned by the Home Office. Claudine throughout the course showed strong active listening skills which is fundamental in any learning/intervention or advocacy role.

She has since gone on to be one of the leading persons in a Haringey community group that was formed out of this training to support those affected and disaffected by gangs and serious youth violence within the borough of Haringey.
