I have been running various businesses for over 30 years. Employment opportunities and independence for disabled people are areas in which I have a lot of experience and is a passion of mine. I have been a WAG Dynamo Project Role Model and Young Enterprise business mentor for over 10 years. I have served as a member of the Citizen Panel for Social Services and was contracted to establish and run the Disability Advisory Group of the Wales Millennium Centre during its construction and fitting out.
I have been a member of Newport Access Group for 15 years and as a full-time wheelchair user it has been a pleasure to be a member of a group which works closely with Newport City Council to make mine and other disabled peoples access to services alot better. However there is always work to do.
