Assistant Programme Manager

Haleemah joined the team following a successful 3-month placement with SportInspired. Her passion for youth sport development was evident through her enthusiasm for the SportInspired mission to introduce sport to as many young people as possible. Haleemah has always aimed to improve the number of girls, specifically ethnic minority girls, participating in sport. During Sixth Form, she created an opportunity via a girls’ basketball team to decrease the drop out rate of young girls.

Table tennis has been a stand out sport for Haleemah. She is currently a member of her university's team where she experiences first-hand the power of sport and how it can have a lasting impact on young people. In her university studies, she explores the barriers to ethnic minority women participating in sport and hopes that in her role at SportInspired, she can help as many young people participate in and enjoy sport!
