Foundation Member – Dame Kelly Holmes Trust

“When someone believes in you, it’s incredible what you can do.” 

Dame Kelly Holmes Trust puts world-class athletes shoulder to shoulder with young people. Equipping them with a winning mindset and shaping their futures – it’s a teammate like no other. Whether that’s building relationship skills, improving self-esteem or learning to stay focused, our sporting champions help the next generation move forward with confidence.

We believe athletes are inspirational role models. Coming from a background where a coaching and mentoring culture is embedded into everyday life, it’s widely recognised that sport requires a high degree of discipline, responsibility and perseverance. Athletes have proven leadership qualities, positive mindset, communication skills, achievement of goals and resilience when dealing with the highs and lows of competitive sport and life. The positivity of their can-do, never quit attitude could benefit us all. We provide specialist training to enable these sportspeople to harness their unique skillset and pass it on to others, working directly with young people and also with our corporate partners and collaborators. It’s a winning combination which gets incredible results.

To understand the powerful impact that working with an athlete mentor can have, you need to experience it yourself. Our corporate partnerships bring our world-class athletes together with your workforce to unlock their potential and make a difference to young people in your community. We offer access to the skills, experiences, and high-performing mindset of athletes, allowing your team to experience the powerful impact our athlete mentors have. Partner with us and Be the Champion in their Corner.
