Our Lead Volunteers

Richard Rolfe

After contracting cancer, leaving his job and a chance meeting with a former student, Richard found himself at the age of 49 in the world of coding and web design. It soon became apparent to Richard that if you are adult and want to gain digital skills its hard to take the first steps.

Jonathan is now the co-lead of National Coding Week and has been instrumental in growing its notability, Jonathan is also a activist for change and runs a number of initiatives aimed at creating a more equitable society for NeuroDiverse Individuals.
