Sport and physical activity can have a powerful and transformative impact on young people’s lives and the communities in which they live.
Our work with the Youth Sector
We work with a number of national and local partners, all of whom are committed to making a difference to the lives of young people. These innovative and inspiring partnerships go beyond sport to improve all aspects of life for young people. These include:
Our work in action
For over 4 years we have delivered Get on Track, the Dame Kelly Holmes Trust’s flagship community-based personal, social and emotional development programme.
Get on Track is led by world class athletes over a 14-month period and is aimed at young people aged 16-25 who are facing disadvantage. The programme helps young people realise the attitudes and behaviours they need to make long term positive life choices.
In that time we, together with a range of local delivery partners, have positively impacted on the lives of over 200 young people across Devon.
