Introducing Lindsay Nott, PBF Youth and Workplace presenter.
On the last day of Grade 12, at the age of 17, Lindsay went for a celebratory swim and broke his neck at vertebrae C5. This changed Lindsay’s world forever. Whilst recovering in hospital, Lindsay and his family learnt what his life was going to look like in a wheelchair and once he returned home after the long stay in hospital, there was a giant learning curve.
For the last 29 years, Lindsay has been a dedicated advocate for disability awareness via public speaking, fundraising, and volunteering as peer support. Lindsay has come on board with PBF to share his extensive knowledge and to educate today’s youth.
