He became a magistrate in 2009, entered politics in 2010 and campaigned for the Conservative Party and became a Conservative Councillor in 2011. He retired from Politics in 2017. He is currently co-leading the transfer of the MMU Crewe campus.
He is a passionate supporter of children’s rights and safeguarding, and the support of women, and he has donated money to various women’s refuges and other causes that support women’s rights.
Michael said, “We believe in a child having a strong core and that in an ever more complicated world for today’s children we need to install confidence, compassion and belief and that children should be listened too. Children are our most precious resource and supporting children earlier is important for them and for us, and for society as a whole. It should lead to preventative action and early intervention which this CIC will specifically look to fund and develop.”
