"I have been supported by KIDS for 12 years. In April 2010 I started at the Relationships and Sexuality (R&S) group . I have learnt a lot of new things from this group about  friendships, relationships, personal space and independent living. During my time in the R&S group I also helped to made a board game ‘relation-tips’, to help others understand how relationships work. In June 2014 I left the R&S group and I started the Young Facilitators group. Here I teach other young disabled people in local schools about relationships.

These two groups have helped me loads and in many ways including; confidence, using sign language skills, c-card training, how to facilitate a session to a large group of people but also having fun along the way!! KIDS R&S group and Young Facilitators have helped me so much over the years and I am very thankful for all the staff and the friends that I have made. I will keep volunteering for a great organisation and giving back to them as best as I can, by fundraising and promoting the work of KIDS."
