Gabrielle Kay (Gabs to us!) was appointed as Community Development Officer at Maidstone Leisure Trust in June 2018. Her role is to lead on the practical aspects of developing links with partner agencies, sport clubs and other organisations to develop a wider understanding of the range of provision available in Maidstone and how the Trust can best support them. A key part of her role is to develop and support projects that promote participation in sport and active leisure activities; both at the Leisure Centre and around the borough. She joins us after a successful year as the local co-ordinator for the Sport England This Girl Can initiative, which encourages women and girls to overcome the fear of judgement and take part in sports and activity. She is keen to hear from any sports club or organisation who may be looking for support. Whether this is to increase membership, help with purchasing kit or equipment, having your club listed on our website, or for anything else you would like to discuss.
