Teaching the emergency services about Autism

One of Adam’s life ambitions has always been to get a paid job, and he has worked really hard, and has taken lots of opportunities in volunteer roles to help prepare him for a paid role.

 

 

Some of Adam’s volunteer roles include an Autism trainer for police and other emergency services, working in the local food bank and as a shop worker at a local charity shop.

 

He has also taken part in ‘Voice, Choice and Control’ training as part of his role as a mirus representative for people who are supported in Bridgend. The training taught him how to better advocate for himself and others.

 

In 2023 Adam got involved with People First Bridgend as a member and volunteer, he attended events to share updates and raise their profile.

When People First Bridgend had a chairperson vacancy Adam didn’t hesitate in applying. After being successfully shortlisted Adam got busy preparing for his interview with some support from his network.

 

Adam successfully interviewed for the role and is looking forward to chairing many meetings.

 

 

Adam is a keen advocate for others, and always supports people to speak up and get their opinions heard.

 

He is also excellent at helping people to understand what is being said, and makes sure everyone uses plain English. Adam’s inclusive approach to advocacy will ensure that he is a fantastic chairperson for People First Bridgend.
