"MY AIM IS TO INSPIRE AS MANY YOUNG PEOPLE AS POSSIBLE TO BETTER THEIR SITUATION " 

Wayne Cockram

MY STORY: Wayne Cockram
Whilst serving in Serra Leone with the British Army I did some support work teaching local children rugby and organising events to make their lives better in any way we could. It really ignited a passion for working with young people and helping them improve their situation. On leaving the army I was lucky enough to get a job with South Gloucestershire Council and worked as a sports coach and a mentor for 8 very enjoyable years, I have also worked within mentoring in the private sector. I feel that this experience has given me a very comprehensive look at the mentoring industry in the south west of England.

I’m very passionate about treating every young person as an individual, and doing my upmost to ensure that every young person gets the best mentoring on offer. My role within Impact is to find and train the very best mentors available, then support them in achieving excellence in their work. It's very easy for a company to make bold clams about quality over quantity and all the great outcomes we can offer, but right from the start, I am adamant that impact mentoring will have a high enthusiast on one to one mentoring with fully trained mentors and will invest time and effort into securing the best outcome possible for any young person we work with.

SPORTING HERO: Jonny Wilkinson
I know it’s very obvious, but who else is a better example of the perfect sports man, he trains hard plays harder, he is a leader, an icon and above all a great role model for any young person. The new Guinness advert about him makes my hairs on the back of my neck stand up. “Sir Jonny we salute you”, said by a French man.
