Georgia is a 17-year-old young lady from Beswick, a deprived area of Manchester.

She has had to overcome a number of barriers in her life and is no longer able to livin her family home. Georgia recently completed her Sport Leader Level 2 and helpout as an Assistant Sports Coach at Active Communities Network, supporting children who had specific needs when the other staff were unable to. Initially she was quite shy, but really embraced the volunteering opportunity and became much more confident in acting as a positive role model to others. Her volunteering work is a brilliant outlet for her and owning her own smartphone will help her to regain confidence in other areas of her life. 

Georgia has said,

"I really like my new phone it’s top thank you it’s helps me communicate more with my friends and family. Thank you, I really appreciate it." 

Chelsea, her older sister who is taking care of her said,

“We’re so grateful that Georgia was picked to have one of the phones! It really helps with her confidence in getting about on her own and chatting with her friends on social media is one of her favourite things to do! She’s so happy!"
