Outside of his professional life Matt is a leader of a Scout Group for young people with disabilities based in Sussex UK (2nd Chailey). Having been involved with the group for most of his life, he has witnessed many changes in the way people with disabilities are integrated into society and welcomed into a global organisation like Scouting. As an active group, 2nd Chailey have visited a number of theme parks and visitor attractions over the years and Matt has seen first hand examples of inclusion and exclusion alike.
