He has heard first hand from his friends about some of the challenges that LGBT+ people face and is committed to doing his part to support them. LCP has always supported people to be the best they can be and empowers people to reach their full potential. Shaun believes that this has been a key reason behind LCP's success.

Shaun comments that:

"LCP truly welcomes and celebrates all members of the LGBT+ community. I am proud to be an LGBT Great Project 1000 Role Model because being a visible supporter of others can really make a difference".
