Interview with Linda on BBC London News - BBC London News felt it was very important to show a picture of Joe and after much discussion the family has endorsed one photo of Joe, which was taken when he was in Primary School and therefore we feel could not be used now to identify him.
As always, we feel it is necessary to protect him from being at increased risk in the future, as you know, people with mental health difficulties can be more at risk and more vulnerable in many situations where their behaviour may be misunderstood or misinterpreted; Joe is also not in a position to give consent to a more recent picture of him.
For these reasons, we are releasing and endorsing only one photo of Joe and if groups/organisations feel it would help with publicity to use it, please contact me directly to register interest and request an electronic copy. Alternatively, feel free to use the logo on the website.
Joe's family and friends are very grateful that supporters recognise the importance of not circulating other pictures of Joe (it will be for him to decide, when he is well enough to) and feel it shows great support and understanding: thank you!
