Generation 2015 profiles: Nathan Mattick

I am 19 years old, and living in Kingston upon Thames near London with my parents, brother, and foster sisters.

I love sport, particularly football. I am the first wheelchair-user to become an FA qualified football referee in Britain. I referee both disabled and able-bodied matches for five, six, seven, eight and nine-a-side teams - indoors and out.

For the past three years I have lived in Gloucestershire while attending National Star College in Cheltenham, studying BTEC Sport. I have been president of their Student Union for the past two years.

I am passionate about equal rights for disabled people, as we can make as valuable a contribution to this world as anyone else.
