Name: Ben Simms
Age: 20
Year of the Fix: 2019
Location: Watford, UK
Campaign: To promote disability employment in sport.

I am the Disability Support Project Officer at Watford FC.

 

I myself suffer from total of 9 disabilites including Asperger Syndromme and ADHD, but I have not let that stop me from pursuing a career in football.

 

We want our video to encourage others with disabilities to take part and work in sport, whether that be football or whatever else their heart desires.

 

I think it’s more about other people’s perceptions rather than those of the person with the disability, and they should never be discouraged from following a career that interests them.
