I founded this charity in 2013 to help fight homelessness and poverty across the UK. I'm still its Chairman. One of the great things about this charity's work is that it connects executives from across Britain with the causes and effects of homelessness in their local community. As of the end of 2017 this charity has raised well over £1,250,000 and around 1,500 CEOs and senior executives have joined the fight against homelessness and poverty.
I founded this charity in 2012 with the aim of encouraging businesses to support their community and boost social cohesion. I still chair the charity and to date we've raised more than £2m for the benefit of community groups and charities across Teesside.
At the end of 2016 CEO Sleepout launched a not-for-profit Middlesbrough restaurant called The Fork in the Road. This high end restaurant will always employ some staff who're recovering addicts, ex-offenders or from other groups who find it hard to get a new chance. Related to The Fork is a zero alcohol venue called Bar Zero.
I invest in range of businesses.
I have a hands-on role with some of these businesses, while I’ve simply invested money into others.
I’m always looking for new opportunities, so do get in touch if you have a business you think I might be interested in.
