Rich was born to help others and I can think of no better person to lead a Charity. We worked together on several community projects and his passion and enthusiasm to improve his community and to support and promote those who are vulnerable just shone through like a beacon. Rich has drive, warmth, gets things done and above all, he is a naturally and gifted leader in his field of work.
Gary Horton
Former Service Manager,
Finance Group
Rich is a brilliant young man. I've had the privilege of working with him to provide opportunities for some of societies most disconnected and vulnerable to engage in learning, when this previously may have not been possible.
His concern for communities, particularly those within them who struggle, is infectious.
Rich comes with my highest commendation.
Michele Sutton, OBE
Former Chief Executive,
Bradford College Group
I've seen 'Rich in action' at the grassroots locally, on platforms nationally advocating on behalf of the people he feels called to serve and in a policy advice capacity - he is a force to be reckoned with.
Rich is a compassionate social innovator. His ability to draw people together for the betterment of other people's lives is wonderful.
What shines through everything Rich turns his hand to is care and commitment.
Baroness Royall
Former Leader,
House of Lords
