Michael Richards

Head of Service

On completion of the PGCE Course, and a couple of years’ experience teaching, I came to the conclusion that teaching wasn’t for me – but I still wanted to work with people. My brother worked for M&D Care and explained to me the role of a support worker, and how he would support individual’s to learn and develop new skills to support them to live independent lives. It sounded perfect.

I loved working within M&D Care from day one. I quickly developed throughout the company, and after 8 years of being part of the team, I am now lucky enough to be a Head of Service.

I love supporting the development of people and to watch them achieve their goals. We have supported many of people we support to achieve their goals, whether this is to book a holiday, or step down from Residential Care to Supported Living/Domiciliary Care, we have systems in place that allow staff that ensures the needs of the people we support are met. I have also enjoyed supporting staff to develop within their roles, and progress throughout the company.

I am very excited for the future of M&D Care and am very honoured to be the part of the Management Team that will be pushing the company forward.
