Drew, 18, is a participant we met through our work with YMCA Derbyshire. He found himself homeless as he started college, but hasn’t let this set him back.

With the YMCA’s support, he took up every opportunity offered to him, resulting in him represented England at the Street Football World Cup and winning the national We Believe Award at the YMCA Youth Matters Awards.

Now, he’s completing an apprenticeship and has a bright future ahead.
