David Savizon

the power of dreaming

David Savizon is proof that it’s never too late to pursue your childhood dreams. He began acting in 2014 alongside his already demanding job as a gangs worker for an Inner London Council.

Savizon and his team tackle highly-organised crime networks, helping to prevent young people from being recruited into gang life. They are responsible for trying to get troublesome kids – mostly those who have been suspended or excluded from school – to dream again and realise that their ambitions can be achieved, albeit with a little guidance.
