Raymond Bascombe, Ballers Community Club
 
"I am interested in representing the VCS board because I feel, at 27 years of age, I am able to identify closely with the issues young people face.
 
Representing the VCS will give me the opportunity to network with similar organisations to Ballers Club Community based around providing opportunity to young people while also allowing me to gain more information and a solid insight into what is being done for young people in the present and for the future.
 
The relevant skills and expertise which will support me representing the VCS are I am a : Confident communicator, I have the ability to debate efficently and unbiased. I grew up participating in youth related crime but I was fortunate enough to turn a negative outlook on life into a positive outlook and create a successful community organisation.  I deal with over 60 young people per week so on a sports/mentoring basis so I am able to base opinions from a young persons point of view. I believe me being recruited onto the VCS board would be a pivotal inclusion and will provide diversity swell as help shape the future for young people."
