What is the DKH Legacy Trust?
Dame Kelly Holmes wanted to create a legacy from her athletics career that would benefit the young people who look up to, and are inspired by elite sports performers like herself.
Having seen first hand the difference that world class sports performers can make to kids’ lives, Dame Kelly set up her own charity, the DKH Legacy Trust. Its mission is to get young lives on track.
Uniquely, every young person that the Trust supports has the chance to work with, be inspired by, and learn from the experience of world class sports stars. Our world-class athletes mentor and support young people across the country through a range of our personal development programmes. Our Olympians, Paralympians, and world champions know what it takes to overcome adversity, and still have the will to succeed, not only in sport, but in life too. Across our programmes, our athletes inspire, motivate and support young people. They engage, enable and empower them to go on to make positive changes in their own lives.
As well as the lives of young people, the DKH Legacy Trust is also committed to supporting athletes, whether they are still competing, retired or in that transition phase of their lives, experienced by so many top-class sports performers.
