After a brief period of foreign travel and work, development work with 'The Site' Project (for Youth and Unemployed) in Manchester City Centre led him to meet promotors of The Churches' Work Scheme in Moss Side, from which Firmstart was established in 1986. Having worked for Firmstart ever since, his present responsibilities include company development, and property and financial management for Firmstart (Manchester) CIC. Other positions include trustee/director at local charities Wesley Community Furniture and Solidarity Catalyst. John's pastimes are many and varied, but travel, music, food, drink, nature and the environment are favourites. Also recycling, and cycling !
