Dame Kelly Holmes Trust is the only charity in the UK who provides extensive support to world class athletes in their lives beyond sport and utilises their unique set of attitudes, behaviours and experiences to transform the lives of young people facing disadvantage.  Along with empowering young people to lead positive lives, our work also delivers far reaching benefits to local communities and the wider UK economy.
Since 2008, we’ve supported over 400 world class athletes beyond sport and delivered our transformational and inspirational mentoring programmes to over 300,000 young people facing disadvantage.
Last year two thirds of young people facing disadvantage were in education employment or training just five months after completing our ‘Get on Track’ programme and three out of five were regularly participating in sport.  For every £1 spent, a social value of £3.70 was generated.
Our ambition over the next four years is to support a further 500 world class athletes beyond sport and use them to extend our high impact transformational programmes to young people facing disadvantage across every area of the UK.
