Duncan helps runs MSC meetings in North Essex. He was also crucial to securing funding for the Council from MENCAP. Duncan now runs the MFS college site off of Jaywick Lane, meaning that he can help provide links to college groups - a key aspect of breaking down perceptions before children leave the education system.
Connell went to Market Field School himself. It is because of Connell that the Council now has a football team - he wrote Kierran a letter back in 2017 outlining his vision for a new MSC football team and here it is! Over 30 young children with disabilities across North Essex are involved in the team.
Harry is our lead coach at our Saturday morning football club where he is supported by his Dad. Harry also attended Market Field School and has given some excellent speeches in the past. Harry is a fantastic Ambassador and is very honest about what he might find difficult. He is a great mentor for the children around him. Children of the council can learn a lot from Harry.
Justine is our lead Ambassador for music and song-writing.

Gen is the author of our first ever book, Sam and the Spider. Gen has attended several Multi School meetings and is always open to ideas about her books and how to break down perceptions.
