Our Outreach Workers

All our outreach workers are young people that have come through our programmes and have shown exceptional leadership and a desire to continue the work we have started. These young people have gained their FA level 1 & 2 qualifications in Football and a multi-sports activator qualification. They are all extremely enthusiastic about helping their peers progress onto positive pathways and believe in the work that we do.

Our Trustees

Catherine Armstrong

Chairman

“Working with BIGKID is hugely rewarding, as they make such tangible differences to the lives of young people.  I am continuously impressed with the impact they have, and the drive and tenacity of the leaders and volunteers.”

David Ziyambi

Treasurer

“I am always supportive of initiatives that seek to improve the lives and aspirations of young people, especially those from ethnic minority or underprivileged backgrounds. No matter where they are found, talent and potential should always be nurtured.”

Nimesh Christie

Secretary

“It is wonderful to be part of an organisation that provides invaluable help to young people in need. BIGKID provides a platform for those young people to achieve their potential and encounter opportunities that would otherwise be unfathomable.”

John Herriman

“It’s wonderful to be able to create opportunities for young people to grow and develop because social background should never be a barrier to success.”

Nicholas Heard

“I am honoured to be working with and supporting the great work of BIGKID in changing the lives of young people. The passion and dedication shown by every member of the charity is nothing short of sensational and the belief and relentless energy they have in London’s young people is staggering!”

Michelle Tuft

“Having lived in London all I my life I am delighted to be involved with an organisation that is doing so much to improve the lives and futures of young people in London, enabling and equipping them to realise their true potential and ambitions in often challenging environments.”

James Potter

“I’m honoured to be part of the BigKid organisation, who provide barrier breaking opportunities for the young people of inner cities. The experiences provided by BIGKID remove stigmas and stereotypes, allowing young people to realise that anything is possible.”

Our Volunteers

We are very privileged to have over 50 volunteers who work across our programmes to help make a difference in the lives of the young people we work with. The majority of our volunteers are young people who have come through our programmes themselves and are now giving back to their communities.

Without their support, enthusiasm and energy it would be very difficult to make the impact we have on our young people.

If you would like to volunteer with us in any capacity, we would be more than happy to sit down and have a chat with you about it. Click here to find out more:
