Dame Kelly Holmes Trust is a UK youth sports charity that supports 11-25 year-olds who are harder to engage in both education and in the community. The charity achieves 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's confidence and self-esteem increases, which enables them to move into employment, become leaders within their communities, achieve in education and improve their wellbeing through sport and physical activity.
Every programme is run by an experienced Athlete Mentor, who have seen the highs and lows of world-class competition and know what it's like to overcome adversity. These athletes make the most of their skills and experience to help and improve young people's lives.
