Workforce Development Programme Manager
Richard joined SDF in 2017 and manages the Workforce Development Team.
After graduating from Leeds Metropolitan University, Richard worked for many years in projects across England and Scotland working in substance use, homelessness and mental health, many of which at managerial levels.
After a period running a training programme within a charity, he moved on to rolling out national training programmes, including a project that was awarded the European ALCUIN award for its innovative practice in engaging service users.
His interests include training practice and evaluation, user involvement and equalities. Oh, & tea; lots of tea.
