Victoria Smith – Bognor Regis
Victoria works for Stay Up Late as Gig Buddies Assistant as well as being an Ambassador. Victoria wrote a very well-received blog about how so few people with learning disabilities are given the opportunity to have a paid job and what can be done to improve things. She was also part of a small group from Stay Up Late who took part in a workshop discussion hosted by Heart n Soul for a major research project on attitudes to people with learning disabilities. Known in the Stay Up Late office as the Queen of Quotes, she offers pearls of wisdom on many aspects of life. She was quoted in the Guardian newspaper in an article on specialist healthcare support for people with learning disabilities.
