I joined POINT as a volunteer following on from the professional support we received for our son whilst going through the process of an EHCP application.

I am a parent of a son with diagnosis of ASD, SPD, Tourette’s and High Anxiety.

I wanted to give something back to POINT as a thank you and began volunteering.

As a result of volunteering I began my SEND Legal Training having achieved my Level 3 qualification, in June 2019. and I was given the opportunity of the role of Young Person Co-Ordinator.

In October 2020 I moved into my current post of Activities Manager starting a new challenge.

As the Activities Manager I will be interested to hear what parents and carers, along with our young people and children, have to say on the activities they would like to access and looking at the opportunities to develop these within our activities offer.

Over time I have come to learn that the voice of the individual is the most important part of trying to make things successful. By doing this I feel that we can develop activities that are inclusive for all of our families and look forward to seeing these develop over the coming weeks and months.
