Joe Powell

Joe Powell is a 34-year-old man with Asperger Syndrome. Despite making massive progress in care, Joe became very frustrated at a system he felt labelled and stereotyped him.

Joe had to fight to leave his care service and get his individual budget. He is determined to support organisations like In Control to give everybody with a care or support need full control over the decisions that affect their lives.

Joe is an international speaker on autism and has spoken on TV, radio and for senior MP's in Westminster as well as at the Labour and Conservative party conferences.
