Hi I’m Chris. I was diagnosed with dyslexia and autism at an early age.
My journey began when I was 5 years old and since then I have achieved things I never thought I would.
SNOOP helped me learn and practice the life skills needed to become successful and to cope with modern life. This made school life easier as outside of school SNOOP helped me with my studies to achieve my absolute best and overcome the challenges with my dyslexia. I received my GCSE results in 2013 and a grade C in English.
SNOOP gave me the opportunity to become chairman of committee for their ‘Help I’m Lost Card’™ Scheme, and with their support took part in voluntary work which further lead to me being employed as a “play support worker” and taking an NVQ course.
SNOOP helped when choosing my career as I wanted to become a police officer, they signposted me to the “explorer programme” and I achieved the explorer of the year award!
At 20 years old, I realised my ambition to become a special constable within the West Yorkshire Police Constabulary. By the time I was 21 I had achieved a degree in Public Service Management and completed my training. I firmly believe that I would not be in this position today if it wasn’t for the timeless support and commitment Snoop has given to me over the many years . I believe SNOOP is the most valuable organisation which supports many individuals, parents and carers.
