My name is Daniel Watkins, a Community Advocate for Adults with Autism and Learning Disabilities across Shropshire, Telford and Wrekin.

In early December 2020, I was awarded The Coronavirus Learning Disability and Autism Leaders’ List award for the voluntary work I do to ensure that those with such abilities can have their voices heard by their local government.

My work consists of 5 elements which are:

  • Listen and gather information
  • Speak with a local advice service relating to the individual’s concern’s
  • Collate all information into a report
  • Speak with the relevant organisation to encourage change with the report produced
  • Feedback to the individual
