Our founders

In February 2017, Nicola and I set up the GFG Foundation to support industrial skills development and to encourage and inspire young people to puruse careers in engineering, metals and renewable energy.

The Foundation focuses on programmes to support people, particularly young people, to reach their potential and strengthen industries and local communities.
