Tracey Ford is the Founder of the JAGS Foundation, created in memory of her son Andre, who was shot in 2007 whilst at his friends’s ice-skating party. Andre died from his injuries; he was 17 years old. To help prevent similar tragic loss of life, she decided to do something to stop the culture of gangs and youth violence by speaking out on the issue. This led Tracey to found the JAGS Foundation in 2010, an acronym of her son’s full name, James Andre Godfrey Smartt-Ford. JAGS raises awareness of the consequences of youth murder and addresses problems affecting young people today offering peer mentoring in schools and works with agencies that help vulnerable young women. Women supported by the project have gone on to volunteer, using their lived experience to help others move away from youth crime.
