Rotherham United Community Sports Trust is pleased to welcome Trudi Race to our Sport and Community Development team as our Disability Coordinator.
Trudi is a personal trainer and sports coach that has worked within the mental health setting for approximately 6 years.
Trudi’s role at the Trust involves creating and sustaining sporting opportunities for three main target groups. These groups include Rotherham residents that are diagnosed with Early Onset Dementia, suffered with a brain injury and/ have mental health issues. Her role also includes recruiting volunteers and offering training to ensure sustainability.
Sport & Community Development is made up of two subthemes: Inclusion and Sports Development.
Inclusion seeks to bring the diverse communities of Rotherham together to engage in a range of activities. We work largely with young people aged 13 to 19 delivering positive activities to get people engaged before hooking them onto wider projects that may include active citizenship, equality training and educational project work.
We work in a variety of settings including schools, youth clubs, community outreach programmes, local parks and green spaces and alongside other community groups. Also, school holiday camps such as: football, multi-sport, disability and girls only. We provide a variety of programmes that targets children between of age of 0 – 19 years old.
Trudi commented, “I am extremely excited to start work for the Trust. The sport inclusive project is something that I am really passionate about. I believe that sport plays a massive role in recovery and this is a great opportunity for adults in Rotherham who are experiencing any type of mental health issues.
