CHARITY campaigner Rosa Monckton has been made an MBE for her work with young people with learning disabilities.

She founded the Brighton-based charity Team Domenica last September.

Its aims include helping young adults find and retain employment.

This can then help them develop a sense of direction, purpose and belonging in their local community.

It is named after her daughter Domenica – a goddaughter of the late Princess Diana – who has Down’s syndrome.

The charity supports people both in the UK and overseas.

Rosa said: “I am honoured to accept this award on behalf of all the young adults, and those who are working with them, at Team Domenica.

“And beyond that, all the parents throughout the UK who struggle to provide the best for their special children.”
