A former England footballer and Great Britain triple jumper are working with young adults in Weston to inspire them to achieve their potential.
Jack Rutter and Michelle Griffiths Robinson are both mentors at the Sanctuary Supported Living's Weston Foyer.
The organisation provides support for vulnerable and homeless young people aged 16-25 year olds.
The athletes are part of the Get On Track initiative run in partnership with the Sanctuary Supported Living and the Dame Kelly Holmes Trust.
The six-month programme aims to motivate young adults at the scheme to pursue their ambitions as well as improve their confidence, resilience and self-esteem.
