Rebekah joined Dorothy Goodman School as a patron in 2014. She alongside husband Jamie have been a huge support to our young people over the years, helping to raise the self confidence of our pupils by championing their achievements and aspirations to the wider public. 

 

Rebekah loves to get stuck in and regularly makes unplanned visits to the school to volunteer in class, throwing herself into messy play activities, sensory workshops or supporting the students during more curriculum based lessons such as Maths and English.

 

She is also plays a huge role in highlighting the challenges faced by young people with learning difficulties, using her magazine column to raise awareness of the fact that whilst the employment rate for disabled people stands at 45.7% only 6.8% of people with a learning disabilities are in paid employment.
