Posted by Justine Solomons on 26 July 2012, in News

We are really pleased to bring you some non-fiction today, showcasing the introduction to Joe Hayman's book  British Voices: The UK in its own words.  The full book is available to buy here.

British Voices: The UK in its own words tells the story of the 100 days Joe spent travelling across the UK talking to members of the public about life in Britain. He says:

"Having spoken directly to over 1,000 people from all walks of life, I like, respect and trust my fellow Britons far more than when I start my journey around the UK but I am also more concerned about British society."

"My book is a call for concerted action, both from political leaders and ordinary citizens, to build a stronger society to face an uncertain future."

Joe is also is the founder of The Community Trust, a new charity set up to build a stronger sense of community and citizenship in the UK. He is also a Trustee of the mentoring charity Friendship Works, through which he has also been a mentor to a teenage boy for the last seven years. He is a director of the social enterprise North London Cares.
