In preparation for an upcoming funding application to Sport England we provided a full review for one of their programmes called the ‘Get On Track programme’.
The Dame Kelly Holmes Legacy Trust ‘Get On Track’ programme is an exciting 3 stage sport and personal development training programme. The participants are mentored by DKHLT Team of Olympians, Paralympians, World and Commonwealth Champions. Having experienced the highs and lows of world class competition, the athletes know what it takes to face adversity and still overcome the odds to succeed: not only in sport, but in life too.
We recruited a number of people in inner-city Birmingham to the programme and tested the recruitment, programme delivery and retention of the project with these individuals.
The review identified a number of challenges faced with the programme and these were fed into the Trust's bid for future funds. As a result of this work, the Trust made significant changes and therefore received a substantial Sport England grant to enable them to upscale the programme throughout England.
