Judy Westwater - Author


After a tormented childhood, much of which she lived as a feral child, Judy Westwater was determined to make her life meaningful. After setting up two drama schools in Surrey and later in Inverness, she went on to work with street kids for seven years in Mexico. For the past ten years her unstinting efforts to help children in the violent townships of South Africa has been inspirational to many, earning her an Unsung Heroes Award in 2004. Over the past ten years, Judy has set up seven day centres for children in South Africa and lectured to many thousands across the UK to raise funds for her work. Her childhood story, was the subject of one of John Peel’s most moving interviews on BBC Radio 4’s Home Truths.
