Malcolm Richards joined the Board of Trustees in November 2021. He has lived in Wokingham for many years and has been both a Borough and Town Councillor, including being Mayor of Wokingham Borough during 2020-21. His interests lie in many different aspects of community, including education, equality of opportunity, health, family, and the quality of everyday life.
Malcolm describes himself as an enthusiastic person, an optimist who enjoys meeting people and discussing their views and opinions and concerns. He thinks that most people, when given a fair opportunity, would want to, and are really able to, achieve so much that can enrich their quality of life.
Malcolm’s career was based on IT and business consultancy, plus the delivery of education and training services in various areas of commerce and industry, both within the UK and abroad.
He is hoping to help Home-Start make a real difference to the lives of families in the Borough.
