A charity that works to raise aspirations and provide opportunities across Derby and Derbyshire to hard-to-reach and vulnerable young people aged 8-25 years of age.
We provide outreach and engagement sessions, using sport as a tool to engage young people in targeted communities.
The opportunities that we provide include sport, qualifications, life skills workshops, employability and mentoring with the aim of diverting young people away from poor life choices and helping them to improve their lives.
We are also the proud hosts of the annual Derby 10k and Derby City Half Marathon which run through Derby, with money raised from entry sales being directly re-invested into the charitable outcomes that we strive to achieve.
We see the opportunity to be involved with the Bondholder community as a great way to raise our local profile and be a part of something bigger. We believe that the work we do across Derby enables the city to be a better place to live and we want to promote that and open up the door to relationships and opportunities where we may be able to do more of this and also harness some of the expertise, influence and experience in the city to allow us to do more social good.
Businesses in Derby are the driving force behind improving the city, the investment, jobs and worldwide profile that they can attract is a key part of creating and sustaining a vibrant and productive city. I believe that we will continue to see growth in the private sector with an ever reducing public sector, potentially creating opportunities for private businesses to pick up opportunities. We will continue to move towards a more dynamic, technology led environment for business, which in itself will create business.
