I joined the Board of ARC as a Trustee in December 2020 and this has helped other Trustees to think about ways to make things better for people with additional support needs on the Board.
I have been involved with ARC for over 15 years in a number of different ways including being the Chair for the National Involvement Network for ARC Scotland for four years.
I have given presentations and delivered training to organisations about the Charter for Involvement.
I am an Associate Trainer for ARC Scotland and am a Lived Experience Advisory Panel Member on the Learning Disability, Autism and Neurodiversity Bill for the Scottish Government.
I have additional support to live my life the way I want it, and have the confidence to speak up and help others to have their voice heard which is very important to do.
