Jack’s Experience as a Trustee
I first encountered SNAP Cymru when I needed support as a child during my education. SNAP made sure that both myself, and my family were equipped to secure the adjustments that I needed to complete my qualifications.
Towards the end of my educational journey, I volunteered some time to SNAP to learn more about the system, gain experience in an office environment, but also to continue to support the amazing work that SNAP do.
I now volunteer as an NEC member (Trustee) to support the services offered by SNAP that are so vital to young people in Wales, I felt I could provide some perspective as someone who has experience with several different aspects of the educational system.
During my time working with the SNAP Team, I’ve learned a lot about how the ALN system works in Wales, and have gained many skills that I use every day in my current job. SNAP has helped me to gain confidence, to identify my main strengths and build upon any weaknesses in a safe and friendly environment.
