Get on Track
Get on Track is a transformation personal and social development project aimed at young people who are facing disadvantage aged 16 – 25. Combining support from the Dame Kelly Holmes Trust's World Class athletes with opportunities to participate in sport, volunteering, training and employability workshops, the project offers a unique package to young people.
Wesport are the local strategic partner for the Dame Kelly Holmes Trust and cover the West of England area. You can find out more about the work the Trust do by watching the video below. We link with delivery partners in order to engage those young people hardest to reach. We have run five projects in Bristol since 2014 in collaboration with 2nd Chance Group.
In the West of England we have supported 61 young people to access a ‘Get on Track’ project.
We can report a 72% progression rate into education, employment or training within five months of the project. We are focused on the behaviour change of those young people who decide to make a positive change after being part of a ‘Get on Track’ project.
