Occupation: Disability Sports Coach, Bridge Hill Day Service

Charlie has worked hard in the last few years to gain qualifications in Sport up to Level 2 in line with his ambition of becoming a disability sports coach.  Through the supported internship programme at Middlesbrough College, Charlie has been working as a disability sports coach at a local school and Bridge Hill Sports Service.
