About Down's Syndrome : Tom

tom-at-nls-croppedMy name is Tom.

I work as a Laboratory Assistant at the Environment Agency’s National Laboratory Service in Devon.  I get paid to do my job.

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.
