About Down's Syndrome : Matthew

Down's syndrome WorkFit

My name is Matthew. I am 27 years old. My favourite comedian is Ken Dodd and my favourite TV shows are Birds of a Feather and One Foot in the Grave.

I have a lots of qualifications in food hygiene and IT.

I worked on the train. I was on the train from Swansea to London. I worked on the refreshment trolley and in the buffet bar. I also made announcements on the tannoy. It was one of the greatest experience of my life!

The staff thought I was amazing at customer service.

I think all people deserve a chance at equal opportunities.

There are three things I want to do in my life. I want to get a job. I want to move out of my parents’ home, I want to find a girlfriend.

BBC Three made a film about me. You can watch it here
