Richard Colbrook

Chair of Trustees
richardc@flourishingfamiliesleeds.org.uk

Hi! I’m a volunteer for Flourishing Families and lead our great team of trustees who oversee the running of the charity. I get to chat to our supporters about our work and all the exciting changes we’re seeing in the lives of families. When I’m not I enjoy walking my dog, Frisbee, or sitting on the bank of a lake catching fish.

I love working for FFL! My specialism is cookery – I really enjoy inspiring families to cook. My own children are now adults, but I still love to cook for them and I often get asked to make roast dinners and cheesecake! I’ve previously worked as a family support worker in a primary school and my favourite hobby is walking in the beautiful Yorkshire countryside.
