Patrick Regan OBE launches a new personal website and blog

Patrick is an advocate for the young people he works with, often commenting on social justice issues within the media. Patrick’s Christian faith motivates him in what he does, and he is passionate about seeing those of all faiths and no faith engaging with those on the margins of society and working together for the common good. is another opportunity for Patrick to speak into these issues. The website includes radio & TV interviews on issues such as youth unemployment, poverty, fatherlessness, values, gang culture as well as press articles from The Observer, The Times, The Express & The Sun. You can also watch Patrick speaking at main stage festivals such as Soul Survivor and Spring Harvest, plus some very moving footage found on the international page filmed in Ghana, Trenchtown & Bolivia.


XLP stands for “The eXceL Project”; a registered charity at the cutting edge of urban youth work in the UK. It was started by Patrick Regan in Peckham, South London, in 1996 after a stabbing in a school playground. They needed someone to speak to the kids and address the issues they were facing. Patrick, a local youth worker, answered the call. XLP now serves young people in schools and communities across seven inner-London boroughs (Southwark, Lewisham, Greenwich, Newham, Tower Hamlets, Camden and Islington).
