About Jodie

About The Charity

Welcome to the Jodie Chesney Foundation website.

My name is Peter Chesney, father of Jodie Chesney who was brutally murdered on the 1st March 2019, this was an unprovoked attack and has completely devasted our family. Jodie was a kind and giving person and will be greatly missed.

Due to the horrific nature of Jodie's murder and subsequent deaths around the country relating to knife crime, I am setting up a charity in Jodie's name. With the help of a team of very experienced people who have worked for many years in professional youth services, I truly believe that we can make a difference to the culture of knife crime in this country

The Jodie Chesney Foundation will develop and provide prevention, intervention, education and support to parents, carers, teachers and young people (including those that may not engage in mainstream support). We will be promoting the reduction and long term eradication of fatal violence by knives and help to relieve victims of the effects of violence within the community.

We have full support from local leaders of Barking and Dagenham, Redbridge and Havering councils and we have already met with government leaders such as Sadiq Khan and Lib Peck who are keen to work with us.

We are at the early stages of our journey and will be updating this website regularly so be sure to check out the 'NEWS' section.

If you would like to help us in our fight against knife crime, please donate through this website and as a thankyou, you'll be sent a car sticker

Thank you,

Peter Chesney
