Pete Richmond

Chief Executive Officer 

Pete qualified as a social worker from Ruskin College Oxford in 1990. His experience includes working alongside the North West Development Team in supporting people with learning disabilities to move from long-stay hospitals to their own homes, through an approach known as ‘ordinary life’.
He also holds a Master’s Degree in Public Administration. Before qualifying, he worked for 8 years as a support practitioner in both the public and not-for-profit sectors.
For 14 years Pete worked as a commissioner and strategist for local authorities which gave the opportunity to gain insight into how the social care sector works.
It’s with this insight he feels well qualified to describe PFI as one of only a very few organisations that is truly committed to a participatory way of working. ‘I’m incredibly proud of working at Partners for Inclusion where both people who we support and those who work in the organisation are given the space to grow’.
