The Change Foundation

The Change Foundation met Maddy in 2016 when she became a participant in the first year of Team Habana, an experiential learning programme designed to develop young people's confidence and leadership behaviours. We were incredibly impressed with Maddy's commitment to Team Habana and her coaching and mentoring skills and abilities and as a result she started work for us as a Project Manager delivering our woman and girls disability programme in 2017.

She took on the management of Girls Win, a goal-setting programme that uses sport to empower young women with a disability aged 11 - 21 to think more positively about their future and in two and half years she has doubled the size of the programme, reaching almost 100 young women per year. This year she has brought all of the evaluation programmes used to get feedback from our young people under one Young Ambassadors roof, taken a keen interest in fundraising including being an instrumental part of winning a big new corporate partner and launched a new Indoor Adventure programme in response to the Covid-19 pandemic.
