Coach Jack stars in BT Sport disability feature

13 May 2018

Foundation of Light trainee Jack is the star of the latest BT Sport film which focuses on the charity’s Making Moves programme, run using funding from the Premier League & BT Disability initiative.

Airing on Sunday 13th May on BT Sport 1 during BT Sport Score, Sunderland AFC players Duncan Watmore and Lee Camp join Jack Ramsey, a young man with a hearing impairment, as he leads a class of young children with hearing impairments in a football-based session.

Jack joined the Foundation Foundation as a participant on their weekend Pan Disability coaching sessions about 10 years ago. He has progressed through the disability pathway and is now in their Coaches Academy trainee programme, training to become a coach and specialising in working with those with disabilities and on their Disability Awareness programme.

The Foundation of Light uses the enthusiasm young people, adults and their families in the North East have for football to engage them in learning and sports activity that can consequently improve skills, motivation, attainment and independence.

The award-winning BT Sport Films team is producing and broadcasting short films on individuals involved and positively impacted by the Premier League and BT Disability programme, raising the profile of the project and the clubs’ broader inclusion work to millions of people.

Following an independent funding application assessment process, successful Premier League clubs employ a dedicated Disability Officer responsible for co-ordinating the programme and promoting inclusion. Disability Officers will work with local agencies to amplify existing work and deliver programmes that engage disabled people through sport.

Sport will be used to provide a range of opportunities such as volunteering, education, employability, and apprenticeships.

To find out more about Making Moves sessions across the region, call 0191 5515309 or email kevin.darke@foundationoflight.co.uk.
