I have three children: Bea (10), Laurie (26) and Joey (22). Joey has severe Learning Disabilities, intractable epilepsy and Autism Spectrum Disorder.
I'm proud and honoured to be the Chair of KIDS (www.kids.org.uk), an outstanding national charity which provides a wide range of help and services to disabled young people and their families.
Charity and Campaigning
I campaign for an improvement in the way that people with Learning Disabilities are treated and represented in culture and the media.
I do what I can to help MENCAP and the Brandon Trust, among others.
I'm also the Patron of Dramatise, a charity which offers drama classes and workshops to young people with disabilities.
I've written various articles on the experience of being Joey's father.
