Qualified to Masters level, he was trained at Central College Nottingham and the University of Derby, where he was also awarded the Margot Levinson award for achievement through adversity.
After working in peer to peer support, Kevin became a ‘first responder’ for the International straight spouse network in 2010, offering telephone and email support, and participating in group work, which he continues.

Through the RNIB he has worked with visually impaired clients in their own homes.
