Ricky Singh was originally from Guyana and came to the UK in the 1960s. In the last 12 years he was the Director of West London Equality Centre (WLEC), a well-established organisation dedicated to assisting the poor and disadvantage to obtain legal advice and assistance.
Ricky was passionate about human rights and saw it as weapon in the battle against discrimination and the marginalisation of those in society who would otherwise be denied access to justice. Ricky saw everyone as deserving of protection of the law regardless of who they are, and he recognised the importance of the WLEC in promoting this. He was a shining light in a world of discrimination and hatred. His light shines on in his legacy of the WLEC.
He passed away on 27th March 2020 from COVID-19, leaving behind his beloved wife, six children and seven grandchildren.
