Michael became Chief Executive at My Sight Nottinghamshire in 2008 after joining the organisation as Fundraising Manager in 2003. He has worked in the voluntary sector for over 25 years, many of which were spent working for the disability charity, Scope. Michael is passionate about disability equality and feels that, while great progress has been made over the past 25 years, there is significant risk that this may grind to a halt and even regress as councils grapple with public funding cuts. He believes disability charities are best placed and duty bound to continue the push for equality.
Michael has been on Visionary’s Board of trustees for some time and was elected Vice Chair in 2016.
