Dame Kelly Holmes Trust

The Trust

We support athletes as they transition from sport, and use their unique skills to transform the lives of disadvantaged young people through our mentoring programmes.

We are the only charity in the UK that does this, because we know that Olympians, Paralympians and world champions have skills that make them ideal mentors. They are driven and goal focused, and have built the resilience and confidence to deal with the lows as well as the highs of competitive sport.

Since we were founded in 2008, we’ve made an impact on 200,000 young people across the country.
