I co-founded WAVE as I am passionate about breaking down barriers for people with and without learning disabilities
After my son’s autism diagnosis, Wave became a lifeline to me. I honestly wouldn’t have coped without them and feel honoured to be a trustee. I’m also a special needs school Governor.
I believe strongly that all people are, and should be, valued equally. The personal friendships I've made 'with not for' people with disabilities has been life changing.
I believe strongly that inclusion is the heart of community and that, for too long, many people have been ignored and unheard. I love the force that WAVE brings to building a new society.
I co-founded Wave because I am passionate about inclusion and know that what we do at Wave helps people with and without learning disabilities to feel more valued in their community
I’m involved with Wave Café and like working in the kitchen and doing different activities
I want to be involved with WAVE because I want to enable a society where everyone is respected and treated equally.
I am passionate about inclusion and I think everyone is and should be valued equally.
’m involved with Wave because…
I want to see communities change and everyone be valued equally
I never know what Wave will create or make happen but I know it will make me smile.
I just love being around people who are completely open and real
I passionately believe that mixed ability groups make all our lives better. Wave is an inspirational way to develop such groups.
I am an Ambassador for WAVE because the idea of "with, not for" approach is the way to go!
My reason for being involved in Wave is that I am high functioning autistic and have a passion for inclusion within the charity sector. I have worked and volunteered in the sector since 2006 and completed my degree in Applied Community and Social Studies.
I'm involved with Wave because I love making change and to be who I am as a person not just with a (l)able of down syndrome, also to inspire everyone.
Wave is very special to me. People like myself with a learning disability can help others. Everybody’s always got something to give.
I've been involved with WAVE since 2018 when I was fortunate enough to work for the Wave Café team... I'd love to see every community take WAVE's We're All Valued Equally message to their heart and for us all to build a truly inclusive society.
