Overwhelming evidence shows remarkable results are achieved when working with children less than 5 years. The BSA promotes its Early Intervention Campaign, with the latest project ‘Every Child’s Chance of Fluency’ achieving excellent results across the country.
Every Child’s Chance of Fluency
As an ex-stutterer, and having achieved fluency during his mid 20s, Mike supports the BSA in terms of its beliefs, values and objectives to educate and support those affected by or who stammer.

The Alzheimer’s Society
Mike’s father lost his battle with Alzheimer’s in 2002.
Because of the nature of the illness and its debilitating effect on both the individual and also those around them Alzheimer’s and other forms of dementia still tend to be a taboo subject, one we’d sooner not talk or think about too much…until we have to.
The Alzheimer’s Society work with staff and volunteers providing local information along with over 2,000 services throughout the UK to people affected by dementia.
Local services include day care and home care, as well as support and befriending services to help partners and families cope with the demands of caring. From Alzheimer’s Café’s and innovative ‘singing for the brain’ sessions to memory-book projects and group outings, The Alzheimer’s Society’s services provide practical support and an essential point of human contact.

The Back Up Trust

As a proud member of business group BNI Putney Riverside, Mike and his fellow members take part in an annual Dragon Boat race to raise much needed funds for The Back Up Trust, as well as getting very wet and have loads of fun with other members of The Back Up Trust. Training commences soon, and this year’s race is scheduled for early September.
