Tom is an intelligent individual with a degree in Media Studies from Sheffield Hallam University. Tom has struggled hard all his life to overcome the barriers which having Autism can create.

With Stride, having Charlotte as his mentor, Tom is now working hard on all aspects of his life. With our support he has become confident enough to attend the gym independently. He also has 3 voluntary jobs, working at Pioneer Social Enterprise Ltd, doing marketing and admin. He works with his church to live stream the service to people not able to attend. Finally he works on a farm doing Conservation work, helping with biodiversity and taking pictures. Tom has also broadened his friendship group, and has planned an abroad holiday with them, which is incredible!

Tom says:

“Stride Yorkshire are committed to my support, they’re reliable, flexible and good listeners. Of all the services I’ve had in my life, this is the best one! I’m now a valuable member of the communities which I’m involved in.”
