Award: Championing Social Inclusion Award
Winner: Ozgur Has Location: Hackney, London
The Saracens Sport Foundation worked with Oz on our Get Onside programme in Feltham Young Offenders. Oz flourished on the employability course, and following his graduation, started mentoring young offenders within the prison. He has become a great example and role model to offenders about how they can change their life, move away from gangs and knife violence, and become positive members of society. He delivers with the SSF in Feltham and the Mount.
