Born in North Kensington, Shaun took to politics after witnessing the route to crime taken by many of his peers. Shaun became a drug-worker for the Blenheim Project, and later co-founded My Generation, a charity addressing the social problems that affect struggling young people and their families, such as anti-social behaviour, drug abuse, crime, pregnancy, educational underachievement, and unemployment. Shaun was drafted in as chair of the trustees at the Pepper Pot Day Centre (2007–2009), an organisation in West London that provided for the African and Caribbean elders and adults with special needs.
