Ramped is run & delivered by a team of experienced riders, youth workers & creative thinkers
My background is in Graphic design and photography enabling marketing and promotions of events, activities and sponsors can be easily coordinated and carried out. I have volunteered and worked as a Youth Worker alongside Aaron Hines and Mike Jeffrey (he trained us) for over a decade. This experience has proven vital for engaging with people, communities, local authorities and business partners to establish the Ramped project and achieve it’s aim to deliver alternative sports to young people.
Having trained as a teacher, I took up a post as a Youth Worker and have worked in a variety of youth projects over 25 years. I try hard to build relationships with people in order to listen to their thoughts and ideas. I’ve had the opportunity to work on a wide variety of projects from foreign exchanges to small festivals, and have always tried to involve people in these. I’ve looked to obtain funding for projects, I’ve looked to work together with other organisations/people to make things happen, I’ve supported full time , part time and voluntary staff, I’ve delivered training in a number of situations and I’ve taken part in local theatrical performances on Sculptural Bonfires (before they are lit)!
My profession involves technical problem solving and large structure fabrication, skills which translate perfectly to the maintenance of the equipment used by the Ramped project and skills I am alway eager to pass on. I have also been involved in Youth Work for over ten years gaining skills invaluable to working and communicating with young people.
Ramped has been funded by Sported, the UK’s leading Sport for Development charity empowering groups to improve the lives of disadvantaged young people through sport.
