Born in Wythenshawe, South Manchester, Andy learned very early about the power of influence. He was a Sea Cadet throughout his youth which gave him moral guidance and character development. On leaving school he pursued an apprenticeship in motor vehicle mechanics, which he soon found dull, and so started teaching water sports for the Sea Cadets, and worked in a shop.
Andrew eventually took on a full-time role in retail and developed into a credible and versatile manager at a young age. Having never pursued further education he decided to go to college to underpin his experience with young people. On completing a Youth Work Diploma and NVQ in Community Development he secured a position with Trafford Youth Service. Soon after Andy
decided to spend some time in Uganda developing an NGO, he launched Dreamcatchers: The original progressive youth work charity.
Andrew spent the following four years with OnSide, developing five £5m youth facilities across the North West which included a turnaround of the failing Manchester centre. He left OnSide at the end of 2013 and created the social enterprise 4hub, whose goal is to help individuals and social sector organisations become more successful and sustainable.
