Meet Our Trustees
I’m so pleased and fortunate to be part of a foundation that helps and supports young people who need it the most
Jen Gadsby Peet
Having been involved with rugby at Richmond FC for over 30 years, I am delighted to be part of the wonderful Seb’s Foundation. Our ambition is to develop the potential and give self- belief to all young people as they begin their life journey.
Having been involved with rugby for most of my life I understand and have seen how sport, rugby union in particular, can afford opportunities and open doors to a different life.
Seb had an outstanding natural rugby talent (which would not have been discovered had he not moved from his beloved football to try out at rugby) and I had the pleasure of coaching and nurturing this talent for many years.
I had to be involved with the fantastic work that Seb's Foundation strives to do, giving a chance to individuals to both enjoy the sport that I am passionate about and introducing them to futures they may not have considered open to them.
There's so much to do to give our young people a good start in life. Times are tough for everyone and it's fantastic to have the opportunity to give them a helping hand to achieve their full potential.
I love working in grassroots rugby and helping young people realise their potential. I am passionate about helping people find their tribe and making sure everyone feels that they are seen and heard, and that they matter.
As far back as my early school days, rugby has been a part of my life. The positive experiences that I gained from playing have gone some way to moulding me into the person that I am today. My aim as a rugby coach is not only training young people on how to play the game but encouraging them to live by the core values of the sport. I’m involved in Seb's Foundation to use rugby to change young lives for the better.
Passionate about all things sport and education, and supporting opportunities in both.
