Double Olympic Gold Medallist Dame Kelly Holmes today announced her vision to support over 10,800 young people facing disadvantage across Wales by 2020.
Speaking at an event in the Senedd, Dame Kelly Holmes spoke about some of the challenges facing young people within modern society and how world class athletes can act as a solution to “transform lives” and empower young people to lead healthier lifestyles, achieve in education, enjoy career success and become involved in meaningful activities.
Dame Kelly said: “We believe that every young person in Wales – regardless of their past or current circumstances – has the potential to have a positive future. It can take just one special individual to help them realise the confidence and determination needed to succeed and the resilience to go again if barriers or challenges arise.”
