My story

[p]Hi, [/p][p]Thanks for visiting my page.[/p][p]I am so excited to announce that I am going to be tackling the London Marathon for the 2nd time, possibly the last! I have decided that seeing as I am going to be training for this I may as well run another marathon, Manchester, a couple of weeks before![/p][p]I am going to be running for two charities close to my heart, Foundation for Change and Fulham Football Club Foundation. [/p][p]I am a trustee for Foundation for Change and having worked myself within the substance misuse sector for ten years, it's a cause I feel strongly connected to. Foundation for Change recognise that once an individual has given up their dependency on a substance, they often become dependent on treatment and welfare and are not adequately supported to take their final steps towards true independence. [/p][p]Foundation for Change provide the support, knowledge, tools and self esteem needed to adequately transition out of the treatment system and into society, helping individuals meet their true potential. This was and still is a gap in the system which i became all too familiar with whilst trying to help my own clients move away from dependency on the state. I have known Bob and Liz for many years now and have so much respect for what they continue to achieve, they are brave, tenacious and nothing less than outspoken and totally action orientated when it comes to the subject of social inequality. [/p][p]If you still have no idea what i am talking about, watch the hit movie I am Daniel Blake to get an insight into the stressful and complicated world of welfare and how Bob, Liz and their charity guide and support people out towards true independence. They're the cure not the bandage. If you get that, you'll get this, you'll get me and what we need to work towards! [/p][p]The other charity I will be supporting is the Fulham FC Foundation. I am lucky enough to support this amazing organisation through my day job and get to see first hand the incredible work they do across the community. Fulham FC Foundation use the power of sport to provide meaningful education, employability, health, inclusion and sport programmes.[/p][p]Every penny donated will then be split 50/50 across the two charities.[/p][p]Wish me luck and any one is welcome to join me for a beer at the end of the marathon![/p][p] [/p][p]x[/p]
