One Goal was founded by Adam Eccleston who as a teenager growing up in the inner city suburbs of Manchester, Adam saw firsthand what happened to many people he cared for who took the wrong path in life. Some got involved in crime, and others drugs; and many were living without direction, rootless and lacking aspirations for their future.
Adam set out to overcome the obstacles of his environment and had the passion and determination to inspire youngsters and provide them with mentorship and direction. He began his community based venture running projects back in 2005 that engaged children and young people at the evenings and weekends and it soon became apparent that this programme was making a real difference in the lives of the children who needed it the most.
Now, over a decade later, One Goal has expanded to work with over 60,000 children within more than 300 primary schools – with a bold mission to inspire over 1 million children!
