Dylan Gallanders

Dylan is studying Sport and Social Sciences at the University of Bath in order to develop an analytical understanding of the place of sport, health and physical activity within today's society.

He is currently part of the Youth Sport Trust's Team Leader Programme, allowing him to gain experience facilitating and delivering workshops, leading groups of young people and creating inclusive environments for young people to thrive in.

Dylan has previously been a Platinum Young Ambassador and member of the Welsh Young Ambassador Steering Group. He continues to be passionate about advocating the voice of young people and inspiring others to take part in sport. 

Dylan has worked for Wrexham Council coordinating their Activ 8-2-16 scheme which aims to provide opportunities for young people with a wide range of difficulties to participate in physical activity. This has contributed to his passion for promoting equality and allowed him to gain an understanding of the barriers to participation facing young people in contemporary society.

He enjoys both playing and coaching a variety of sports as well as volunteering at sporting events.
