Hannah established Inunity after identifying a need for sports and personal development opportunities for young women. She is a creative risk taker, who has driven the development on Inuity. Hannah’s relentless focus on meeting the needs of the young people is exemplary. She has achieved this whilst bringing up a young family. Inunity not only provides girls and young women with access to physical activities it addresses issues of mental health, poverty, exclusion and resilience.
