Jade from StreetVet is the first guest in my new Change Maker series, set up to shine a light on people doing extraordinary things to help animals.

Jade co-founded StreetVet along with another vet, Sam Joseph in 2016.

StreetVet is a charity delivering free care for the homeless and their pets on the streets of London and cities across the UK.

It started with two vets and a backpack back in 2016, and is now run by an army of over 650 vets and nurses in 16 locations.
