When Pete Bell asked, via a mutual friend, if I could help create a charity logo for free, I was happy to help.
Pete runs the project, Step Out. Stay Out. which gives a helping hand and support through FA Coach mentoring and other sports activities. Being an ex-offender himself, Pete understands what its like on the inside and what help is needed on the outside.
Pete says "Sport is a real benefit in prisons so it’s not just a case of an ex-offender goes in and does a bit of football, there’s a lot of plans to try and turn this into something really positive and special.
It’s a massive passion of mine to change the stigma around people who have made mistakes and perhaps haven’t had the support when they come out of prison and end up in that vicious circle of re-offending.
And through mentoring and football education, I believe we can help people to get the same sort of opportunities that I was offered to make a positive impact on the lives of others in the same situation and also improve the number and standard of coaching across England".
