Robert Still

With no qualifications and no job, the future looked bleak when Rob first attended our sessions.

Things are different now. Since being referred to Sporting Futures, he's gained five nationally recognised qualifications and has found a great job too – as a key member of our sports coaching team.

Curtis May

A turbulent childhood tormented by abuse, depression and self-harm left Curtis at rock bottom.

With our help, both his confidence and career prospects have grown. As well as studying for a Creative Media qualification, he now helps other young people as a Community Sports Leader.

Dannie Lowndes

After becoming a mum and having to leave the dream career she'd always worked for, Dannie was in a low place.

After joining a Sporting Futures employability project, Dannie now holds down a full time job, whilst still working for Sporting Futures in her spare time.
