At age 24 Steve suffered spinal cord injury as a result of an accident and was left unable to walk but with a hunger to achieve more ferocious than ever. Since then Steve has won numerous medals and captained GB wheelchair rugby team at the 2012 London Paralympics. In addition to his athletic career, Steve works as a Coach, Athlete Mentor and TV presenter, most recently winning the ‘New On Screen Talent Award’. Steve is also keen to support UK charities, recently raising thousands for ‘Action Medical Research’.

Steve is keen to support the creation of more pathways into sport for young people with disabilities and has spoken passionately on this subject recently at our Influencer Dinners.

Sport is important; it not only helps you become stronger and faster but more focused and reflective as well. It provides you with the opportunity to meet motivating people from all different walks of life. It also a platform where your background is not important and gives everyone an equal opportunity. Access Sport’s mission to transform more young lives through the power of sport is very close to my heart, I am very proud to be supporting such a worthwhile cause.
