Tom – My Story

My name is Tom.

I work as a Laboratory Assistant at the Environment Agency’s National Laboratory Service in Devon.

I travel by bus and train and then walk to get to work.

I wear special clothes and glasses at work to keep me safe.

In the laboratory I get rid of water samples that aren’t needed anymore and recycle different plastics.

It’s great to be working here.

In March 2018 I spoke at the United Nations in New York about my job at the World Down Syndrome Day Conference.

In June 2018 I won the Significant Achievement Award at the Employment Related Services Association (ERSA) Annual Awards.

Freya enjoyed meeting her work buddies at a site visit to @GXOLogistics in Newark. The team are learning some Makaton (sign language) in order to better support Freya in her role. It sounds like a great start! Good luck Freya. https://t.co/b7fST8aaI4
