A Mansfield teenager has credited Nottinghamshire’s youth service for helping him cope with Asperger Syndrome and secure a place at University.

Mark Pastuszka (18) of Rainworth, said his experiences at Mansfield’s Myplace Young People’s Centre, had enabled him to settle in and thrive during the first few months of his BSc Computer Science degree course.

The Mansfield lad, who is studying at the University of Lincoln, has also chaired Nottinghamshire County Council’s Pioneers youth forum representing the rights of young people with disabilities.
