Our Lead Ambassador Gerraint promotes the Engage to Change project across Wales and manages a team of ambassadors. Over to him for a snapshot of what he’s been up to this past month…
13th – 14th November
At the Learning Disability Wales Annual Conference this year at the Holiday Inn, Newport, the project ambassadors helped facilitate workshops and handed out Engage to Change Project leaflets to the public on the exhibition stall. Jordan Quaite, one of the ambassadors, chaired the conference on the second day.
20th November – Presentation Revamp
Tracey and I met in Cardiff to discuss and work on the Engage to Change presentation template. When one of the ambassadors Elsa Jones and I delivered the presentation to the delegates who attended All Wales People First’s Annual Conference in Wrexham, the feedback I received was that there wasn’t many pictures. This is why Tracey and I met in Cardiff.
I am speaking about my journey with autism at the Autism: Future Employment Conference in Wrexham in January. I am very much looking forward to this, and to network with young people and professionals.
