Mr Milise has a particular interest in working with Young Offenders to help change anti social beliefs, behaviours and attitudes.
He feels it’s important to inspire, nurture aspirations and advocate positive mood states
Having come from a disaffected background with adverse childhood experiences and falling into brief spells on the wrong side of the law, Milise is keen to use his lived experience to help improve the trajectory of Young People and Adults that have found themselves in a cycle of recidivism.

Mr Milise spoke to the BBC recently and said: “I like to think that I have positioned myself as a real example of change. A few years ago I never thought I'd be doing what I'm doing Today and working as a Professional Youth Mentor and Public Speaker in partnership with The Police ”
The founder of Knife Crime Victim Support has seen real results since collaborating with Local Authorities as part of his “Music, Mentoring, Arts & Poetry” Initiative.
