Richard has worked on many different consultancy projects since leaving corporate life usually linked to strategic management and communications and marketing. Richard was the lead for two campaigns for the voluntary sector (Council for Voluntary Services) in Thurrock, volunteering and pension credit.
Volunteering in Thurrock
This campaign involved creating a range of communications tools including a dedicated website, posters, booklets, videos and other resources to encourage volunteering. The project also worked closely with the Volunteer Centre which was part of the community engagement. This highly successful campaign linked to so many different groups within the community to encourage everyday people to give back and make a difference.
Pension Credit in Thurrock
This project was slightly dryer in its delivery and involved working with the DWP, Department for Work and Pensions. Again a full range of resources was developed to encourage pensioners to claim their full benefits and entitlement.
