My role: Leep1 Manager

I am the Manager of Leep1 (Leeds People First). This is a self-advocacy organisation for adults with learning disabilities.

I have worked for the organisation since 2011 and since then I have been instrumental in setting up a café which staffs adults with learning disabilities training to level 1 and 2 in food safety to enable them to find employment. I support adults with learning disabilities to run various user led groups such as club nights at Tiger Tiger, campaigns, hate and mate crime awareness, laughter club and gardening groups.
