Stephen Morley, Author, Public Speaker and Inclusion Advocate.
Hi, I’m Stephen Morley and I started Ifnotme-inclusion coaching in order to create space to follow my passion for inclusion. I’ve had a successful career as a sports coach with a focus on inclusive activities such as wheelchair basketball and other adaptive sports. I’ve worked with various local authorities on programmes aimed at minority and hard to reach groups and have delivered programs in areas as diverse as mentoring young people with challenging behaviour and supporting people from ethnic backgrounds through mental health difficulties.
Now having my own consultancy gives me time to write, give talks and lectures and deliver workshops.
I have expertise in working inclusively with people with mental health issues, learning difficulties, physical disabilities and older adults. I’ve also been involved in programs with refugees, those at risk of radicalisation, homelessness and those with behavioural issues.
I’ve published a book called “Running with a wounded hearts” https://amzn.to/2vx64qa
and my new book “Too Old to Ultra” – How older athletes can take on longer distances – will be available to Pre-Order soon.
I am also a member of Cambridgeshire County Football Association’s inclusion advisory group and Disability lead on the Cambridgeshire FA Council.
From sports hall to the boardroom, I’m passionate about inclusion.
Today I share my passion as a consultant, helping others to develop inclusive practices and I offer a range of services to achieve this. Contact me today to see how I can help you.
I deliver guest lectures to students at Colleges and Universities on subjects ranging from Disability Awareness to Equality and Diversity and regularly run workshops which are open to all. Topics include ‘Coaching and Supporting people with a Disability’ and supporting people with poor Mental Health. These workshops are designed to give people the tools and knowledge they need to be more effective in communicating with and adapting activities for people with disabilities or mental health conditions.
Education for coaches
From group coach the coach workshops to a bespoke mentoring programme, I can help you bring your coaching to the next level and be fully inclusive of people with both mental and physical disabilities.
I can provide bespoke equality and inclusion training to you as well as delivering sessions on developing a sporting mindset for effective leadership, tailored to the needs of your organisation. In addition to being a Trustee, I’m currently working as Operations Director for Unity Enterprises East Anglia providing various workshops for UK companies.
I work with several schools, School Sports Partnerships and local authorities to provide inset day and after-school training to staff on using adaptive sports to engage hard to reach children. I currently have two successful projects running: The “No-Limits” games aimed at Primary schools and the “Better Together” program designed for Senior schools and colleges.
Read my book: Running with a wounded heart, now available as a paperback and as an e-book on Kindle through the Amazon store
