  • Lukas Lukas here is 18, he’s deaf in one ear, and that meant he didn’t get on that well at school. He couldn’t always hear what was being said, and he was bullied. He left as soon as he could and admits he divided his time between sleeping and drinking. Things began to change when he found his was into a UK online centre in Liscard. His confidence grew with his ICT skills and he was asked to volunteer as a tutor at the centre. After that he ran the internet café at the Birkenhead YMCA where he lived. He’s got numerous qualifications under this belt, and he’s now at college studying ICT. He says: “Before, I could hardly get out of bed before lunchtime. Now, I have qualifications and I know what I want to do with my life.”
