Jon is a talented ice skater who attended the Inclusive Skating World Championships in Scotland in 2023.

Change can be difficult for Jon, especially following the pandemic, so it was a huge achievement for him to travel to Scotland and stay in a new place.

When asked how ice skating makes him feel, Jon said: ‘Happy.’

Jon is a wonderful example of what people with learning disabilities can achieve with the right support.

In 2023 he won the Jenna Dixon Award at Minstead Trust’s Annual Showcase – watch his video below to find out more about Jon’s skating and his award win.

We are excited to see Jon working towards his next goal of attending the 2024 Inclusive Skating World Championships in Turin and how his ice skating skills will have progressed even more.
