About Down's Syndrome : David

My name is David.

I like to keep busy. I go to a local training centre for a few days a week and I volunteer in a café too. I love to play football and do shows with my drama group.

I also have a paid job working at a school. I started out as a volunteer but after I did a work placement they offered me a paid job.

I feel so proud, my first payslip and my contract of employment.
