Young people facing disadvantage in Merseyside to be mentored by World Class athletes

A transformational programme where young people facing disadvantage are mentored by world class athletes is returning to Merseyside. The unique 14 month programme Get on Track; delivered by national charity Dame Kelly Holmes Trust; is being delivered in Liverpool following its success across other parts of the UK at providing young people facing disadvantage with the attitudes and capabilities to make positive life choices.

The programme will be led by former GB Skateboarding champion Neil Danns, with support from local organisation Youth Fed. With the help of athlete mentors, local young people will learn to develop the high performing attitudes of confidence, resilience, determination, focus and motivation from the course.

In 2016, 68% of the 16 to 25 year olds, who took part in Get on Track across the UK entered employment, education or training within 8 months of starting the programme. Independent research shows that the Trust's transformational young people programmes have had a combined social value of ₤23 million since 2012 to the UK economy. Double Gold Olympian and President of Dame Kelly Holmes Trust, Dame Kelly Holmes said:- "We are delighted to be in Liverpool running our flagship programme Get on Track, which will help transform the lives of so many people facing disadvantage across the City.  It is independently established that world class athletes have a unique set of attitudes and capabilities which has led them to reach the pinnacle of elite level competition. We harness these and use them to transform the lives of young people who require our support and equip them with the skills needed to lead positive lives."

GB champion Skateboarder and Dame Kelly Holmes Trust athlete mentor, Neil Danns, has been a Dame Kelly Holmes Trust mentor since 2011 and has a worked on a range of programmes across the North West. Neil added:- "As an athlete mentor I enjoy being able to give back to other young people and helping to give them an alternative and more positive role models and goals to aspire to the Dame Kelly Holmes Trust works with young people from all walks of life who are facing some sort of disadvantage in their lives and the positive change in individuals from start to finish is exceptional to see."

Double Olympic gold medallist, Dame Kelly Holmes, set up her charity in 2008, which has now reached over 300,000 young people facing disadvantage across England, Scotland and Wales through its transformational and inspirational programmes.

Dame Kelly Holmes Trust has committed to support 1,400 young people facing disadvantage, in Merseyside, over the next 3 years, through its transformational mentoring programmes led by world class athletes.

Get on Track Merseyside kicks off, on Wednesday, 8 March 2017, in Merseyside, which made possible due to funding from Sport England.
