Josh Babarinde for Bethnal Green & Bow

Josh Babarinde for Bethnal Green & Bow

Josh Babarinde is the founder of Cracked It, a social enterprise based in the borough that supports young ex-offenders away from crime and towards employment. In 2019, the Evening Standard named Cracked It the Social Enterprise of the Year.

Josh has also contributed to the Tower Hamlets Stop and Search Monitoring Group, holding the police to account where it was clear that young male members of the Bangladeshi community were disproportionately targeted by their Stop and Search tactics.

Josh said: “Tower Hamlets has among the greatest crime and anti-social behaviour challenges in London. My frontline experience working to tackle knife crime locally across multiple communities puts me in prime position to challenge Labour and the Conservatives on their community safety records.”
