Tracey Ford is the founder and Chief Executive Officer of JAGS Foundation. With a background in the financial services industry, a former lecturer teaching Certificate in Mortgage Advice Practice (CeMAP) at Guildford College and small business owner, having set up a mortgage practice specialising in mortgages for women service professionals, she suffered an extraordinary life changing situation that saw her life collapse around her. In February 2007, her only son James Andre Godfrey Smartt-Ford left home to go a friend's party at a London ice skating rink. He never returned home - Tracey's life catapulted into a totally different sphere. On that busy Saturday evening on 3rd February 2007, James was shot twice in front of over 300 people inside Streatham Ice rink and never lived. After experiencing this very sudden personal tragedy, she set up JAGS Foundation to support offer families facing sudden devastation as we continue to see a rise in the numbers of teenagers affected by youth on youth violence. The trauma and devastation caused to family, friends and the wider community following the loss of a child is traumatic and Tracey now works relentlessly to raise awareness of the youth violence and to 'keep hope alive in young people' by providing healing, education and restoration to individuals living with trauma of youth violence.
