James

Meet James!

James is the happy softly spoken guy you will see at Monday Fun Club, Big Chaos and Friday Sports and Play Club. He is really patient and calm all of the time. He has loads of attributes to make a great deliverer but possibly his best ability is to engage the children who struggle with a task the most. He explains and demonstrates in a way which is simple to understand and replicate.

James’ experience is a little different to the rest of the family. James was a young carer who started helping us a number of years ago. James understands the participants and families perspectives through firsthand experience.

James is a fully qualified sports coach and loves to add his differentiated ideas into his delivery.

You may also see James delivering holiday activities at in Stourbridge and Dudley.
