Gary Concepcion is a British Labour politician.[1][2]

Notable work[edit]

Concepcion was interviewed and filmed for the Commonwealth Heads of Government Meeting 2018.[3]

Concepcion has took part in many prominent projects including Reclaim Radical, a series of films aimed at professionals who work with young people, the idea being that the films can be used to spark debate and create a ‘safe space’ in which to talk about radicalisation and other contentious issues.[4][5][6][7][8][9]

Honours[edit]

Concepcion was honoured by the Lord Mayor of Leicester in 2012 for his Act of Bravery.[10][11][12]

Awards[edit]

Concepcion was awarded the Lord Lieutenant‘s Young Person of the Year Award and the Young Braveheart of the Year in 2017. He is a Finalist again in 2020 and in the new and inaugural Young a Leader of the Year category.[13]

He won two Outstanding Achievement Awards during National Youth Work Week in 2016.

Attack[edit]

Concepcion was the victim of an unprovoked attack on the 20th September 2018 where he was set upon. The attacker repeatedly and continuously punched Concepcion in the head and face and then strangled him. Concepcion managed to fight back, break free and call 999 to which he was told that the police were ‘too busy’ to attend and to just run home. The attacker was never found, with popular belief believing that police didn’t investigate properly insofar as they didn’t check all available CCTV. This was publicised in the press locally and nationally.[14]
