Colonel E T Bolitho OBE – Lord Lieutenant of Cornwall, Patron of White Gold Cornwall
I have been hugely impressed by all I have seen of White Gold Cornwall. The team are providing vital help for some of our most challenged and challenging young people through their assertive mentoring programme. The results they achieve can make a real difference to the lives not only of those involved, but also to their families and many others in the community. WGC is an important organisation within Cornwall and deserves all our support and encouragement.
George Eustice – Member of Parliament
I was very impressed to learn about the brilliant work that has been done by the White Gold Cornwall team in helping so many young people find a new start. It offers a unique and innovative caseworker approach to helping those at a pivotal age who really need guidance and does vital work in reducing the risk of offending. I truly support their work and am sure they will grow from strength to strength.
Andrew George – Former MP for St Ives
“We don’t have enough services to support young people who need to ‘get back on track’. Initiatives such as the kind of one-to-one mentoring pioneered by White Gold Cornwall are a welcome contribution which we hope will help deliver positive outcomes and ultimately make a real difference to young lives”.
Josh Lewsey – England Rugby World Cup winner
“White Gold Cornwall is a unique support service for children and young people in Cornwall that clearly need extra help. I especially value the concept of sport as a medium to help and develop young people and their potential aspirations. Keep up the good work in Cornwall.”
Jemma Simpson – Olympian
“Sometimes young people need a second chance, sometimes they need to be challenged and sometimes they just need a strong role model to mentor them and help channel their life in a positive way. White Gold does some great work with youngsters on a ‘one to one’ basis and I like the way they often use sport to bring out the best in them. I am proud to be associated with a great Cornish service that helps young people improve their fives”
Johnathan Fox – Paralympian
“White Gold is doing some great work with young people, my message to them is – Just do whatever you do even if it isn’t a sport just keep at it and you will reach your goal. If you want that outcome in school orin a sport you will do everything in your heart to do it”
