‘It has been great working with William over the last few months, where he has played a key role in supporting us with an innovative “Disability Confident” project to increase the number of disabled people we employ at United Response. William is a joy to work with and is able to gain others’ trust and confidence easily and quickly. He is very “can do” and positive in approach and has the ability to translate ideas into clear and practical actions.
William has also been very flexible and responsive in supporting us with other work, including business development for our employment services. I have been very grateful to him for picking this up so quickly and producing such high quality work’.

'William has a true skill set for engaging, inspiring and delivering projects. William was a solid lead on one of Essex’s most influential pieces of work around Mental Health (The 555 Project). This has subsequently led to major impact around commissioning changes and the use of Lived Experience.
I always find working with William a real pleasure. His sense of optimism and genuinely positive attitude is a delight. He has a strong moral code and is one of my most trusted colleagues.
William is an intelligent, strategic thinker'.
