Josh’s story – Campaigning for disabled rights

Joshua Reeves smiling

When Joshua Reeves started his campaign at National Star in 2015, he wanted to change the world one step at a time to fight for people’s disability rights. We are incredibly proud to see Josh recognised in the New Year’s Honours List with a British Empire Medal for his volunteering efforts on behalf of people with disabilities.

Josh’s drive and determination is infectious and we are so thrilled that his efforts have been recognised in this way.

After announcing news of his award Josh said: ‘Thank you for letting my journey begin – I credit National Star for that.’

Keep doing what you do best Josh and proving that there is no limit to what National Star students can achieve when they leave college.
