Lee Thomas
JobSense Vision Loss Support Worker

Lee lost his hearing through Meningitis when he was 3 months old and came later in life to British Sign Language which he uses BSL as part of his day to day communication. 

Lee began working for COS in 2008, when the organisation was known as North Wales Deaf Association (NWDA), as a Deaf Children’s Support Worker. 

'One of the highlights of that role was when one of the young people I supported was nominated and selected to take part in Country files Big Ramble for Children in Need in 2018. I was very proud of them'

Lee currently works on the JobSense project as a Support Worker for people with a Vision Loss. He thoroughly enjoys working with the JobSense team and the wider organisation. Alongside this, Lee also delivers Deaf Awareness Training and BSL courses, while he also works with the Fire Service doing home safety checks for BSL users and those with a hearing loss. He always strives to help and support the people he is working with to meet their full potential in life. 

Lee is often seen in COS video's providing information, BSL learning and works of literature and poetry through BSL.

Lee enjoys spending time with his family. He is a very keen cricketer and plays for his local club, you’ll often find his traveling across North Wales to matches through the summer months. Other hobbies include following the rugby and football.
