Action Sports Alliance

Action Sports Alliance was a social enterprise that delivered youth development projects to tackle issues of rural isolation and social mobility.

I started Action Sports Alliance as a community interest company in 2006 and ran it as Managing Director and Project Lead, developing and delivering projects in schools, community settings, and outdoor activity centres.

0800 Reverse Schools Challenge

The 0800 Reverse Schools Challenge was a mountainboard competition for schools to compete against each other. It engaged students who don’t participate in traditional team sports and gave them the opportunity to experience a different kind of sport.

Work Experience Teamwork skills

As part of ‘Enterprise Week’ for schools across Herefordshire, Action Sports Alliance provided a teamwork skills workshop for groups of students who were challenged to build and race go-karts.

Urban Art Experience

Community-based graffiti art sessions in collaboration with the Police to divert young people from anti-social behaviour.

Cycle Mechanic Training

Individualised support package for young people failing at school to identify potential career paths and provide training and work experience placement. Completed Park Tools Cycle Mechanic Training and a work experience placement at a bike shop, which lead to a job.
