Jay is a Development Manager working on the Changing Sports Basketball programme with a specific focus on social inclusion. Jay will be supporting the development, growth and sustainability of community basketball clubs and groups to enhance their offer to engage more disadvantaged and disabled children and young people.

Although Jay is relatively new to the field of charity work, he was part of a yearlong program to raise £27,000 and then go to Uganda to teach tag-rugby to children in poverty. He has played football at a professional level and basketball at a national level, although basketball has been Jay’s passion for nearly 10 years and will continue to be forever. Access Sport has allowed Jay to harness this passion and use basketball to drive change for local communities. 

Jay is a young father with a 2 year old daughter and just for some proof of his love for basketball, her middle name is Kobe! He loves watching NBA highlights or live games but spends most of his time doing family activities such as swimming and basketball (of course!) as well as going to basketball events across London to either spectate or support.
