Nevertheless, he wanted to work with Individuals with Intellectual Disabilities and those with a Mental Health Diagnosis. He was employed by Oxfordshire County Council as part of a team to support 24 individuals from an institution into their own tenancies. Due to the successful conclusion of the project in Oxfordshire, he was utilized to develop numerous projects nationally.   

Mike is determined to ensure that everybody is treated with respect and dignity. In addition, he is adamant that all individuals should have the opportunity to achieve their goals. He has managed over 50 projects to ensure business success and outcomes for service users, tenants and staff. He undertook these tasks whilst completing the MBA and DBA.

In addition, he co-founded Care Network Solutions, Pathway Homes, Milewood Care Services, Milewood Holdings, Untitled Properties Limited and Windrush. As a co-founder, director and partner Mike was instrumental in the organizations‘ ethics, marketing, project management and staff recruitment, selection and retention.
