Over the last ten years young people facing disadvantage have received over 27,500 hours of transformational mentoring from Olympic, Paralympic and world class athletes. Over 4,700 young people have completed one of our transformational programmes and over 240,000 young people have been impacted through our inspirational programmes.
We achieve this by training and developing world class athletes to deliver personal, social and emotional development programmes for young people facing disadvantage. Through transformational mentoring, young people become empowered them to realise the attitudes and behaviours needed to lead a positive life.
Our programmes are proven to have a lasting impact on the lives of young people and enable them to become healthy, achieve in education, enjoy career success and take part in meaningful activities.
We target those who need our help most, not those who are easiest to reach – last year we ran programmes for care leavers, homeless people, young offenders, women at risk of sexual exploitation and those living within isolated communities.
Our programmes are only ever delivered by Trust-trained athletes who reached a world class level in their sport – this group are naturally high performing and proven to be exceptional leaders for change in young people and communities.
Over the past four years our programmes have contributed £23 million in social value to the UK economy and transformed the lives of thousands of young people facing disadvantage.
