Zac’s story

Zac uses his experiences growing up to support disabled young people in WECIL's youth groups.

After attending one of WECIL’s youth groups for a year, Zac decided that youth work was the career for him. Now being trained by WECIL, Zac draws on his own experiences growing up to support the young disabled people at the different groups. 

‘When I first came to the youth group it made me feel better because there was no bullying – something I‘ve had to deal with all my life. Having a safe space where you don’t have to worry about your looks and impairments makes a huge difference.’

‘It’s their space for them to be themselves’ 

 

‘I love to see the young people enjoying themselves here – no-one judges or asks questions of them. We cook together, play games and make things – it’s their space for them to be themselves. I see them becoming more independent, and growing in confidence with friends around them.’
