Matty Street has been nominated as one of Dimensions’ Learning Disability and Autism Leaders 2018.
Team Karting’s CEO has been nominated for his outstanding contribution in sports, arts and entertainment.
He said: “I’m one of fifteen selected out of 600 people. Thanks to whoever nominated me; some very nice and humbling things got put in the application.”
The Learning Disability and Autism Leaders’ List 2018 is the UK’s first national listing of people with learning disabilities or autism who are helping make things better for themselves and others.
The Learning Disability and Autism Leaders’ List 2018 will be published on the International Day of Disabled Persons in December.
The top-60 list will be published in the Guardian newspaper and website, with interviews with 10 handpicked individuals.
Dimensions is one of the UK’s largest not-for-profits supporting people with learning disabilities, autism, challenging behaviour and complex needs.
