National Recognition for Change Foundation Development Coach

The Change Foundation is delighted to announce that, its very own Daniel Mynott has been nominated for two prestigious ‘What’s On 4 Me 2014 Awards.’

The What’s On 4 Award programmes are now in their eighth year and celebrate the best activities from throughout the UK – both for kids and adults – as nominated and voted for by the UK public.

Daniel Mynott, Development Coach with The Change Foundation, has been nominated for ‘Most Inspirational Coach, Instructor or Tutor (South) and Most Outstanding Support or Activities for Adults with Additional or Special Needs categories which means with 5 nominations, Daniel has made it through to the national voting stage!

Thousands of nominations have been received from around the UK so Daniel making it through to the final stage is a massive achievement, one he should be very proud of. Each and every activity, community group, entertainer and volunteer from throughout the UK has had the opportunity to be nominated, thus ensuring these awards are a true representation of views and a reflection of their eagerness to reward the very best!

Daniel says of his nomination, “I have been working with the Change Foundation for 3 years as a coach on the disability sport programme, Hit the Top, running some of there after school disability clubs. I also run the ASD disability sport project which helps young people with ASD to better understand their emotions and social skills”.

Val Martin, After School Sports Co-ordinator from Lark Hall ASD After School club (one of the clubs that Daniel runs) comments, “We started a specific After School Cricket Club for children on the Autism spectrum here at Lark Hall Centre for Autism in September 2013. This was arranged by Daniel and because we have had the same two coaches for the whole of the term, it has meant that the routines these children need to achieve success has been consistent. The club has purely run with children with Autism taking part but because of Daniel’s personal and coaching experiences, the pace of the club has been at the appropriate level for them”.

Al Ramsay of The Change Foundation says, “I cannot think of anyone more deserving of these nominations than Daniel. Although he would not admit it he is an expert in his field and has used his own experiences in life to make sure the young people he coaches can and will be the best that they can be. Good luck Daniel!”

People can continue to vote for Daniel from 13th August 1st October, by logging onto www.whatson4me.co.uk and register their vote. The winners will be announced on 20th November 2014 at Earls Court, London.
