Richard has been working in the charity and community sector for over 20 years. He has a wide experience of working within local communities helping to develop and deliver projects that aim to improve people’s lives. This has involved working with a wide range of organisations and groups across an assortment of sectors both locally, nationally and internationally. Key to this is an understanding and more importantly a passion for engaging with causes that really help people overcome issues and barriers in their lives and helping people to improve their outlook on life.

Since joining the AOC as a director just over a year ago, he has helped to develop the organisations operations, logistics and developing projects for the team to deliver that will aid the AOC to continue to grow and move forward.
