Richard Lamplough

Over the last twenty-five years, Richard has used his love of project design, words, music, photography and video to support approximately two hundred people with additional needs into paid employment.

Richard believes that harmony is as important as melody, sunshine feels more welcome when there are a few clouds in the sky, and that society should be based on fairness, compassion and equality of access.
