Can you tell me a little bit about yourself?

Hi, my name is Sarlotte, and I’m a 17 year old footballer who supports Wolverhampton Wanderers. I’ve lived in Wolverhampton my whole life, and my passion lies within football where I predominantly play as a centre back, but I’m also able to play in the full-back positions.

Sarlotte is a 17 year old football player from Wolverhampton.

What’s your biggest concern with how racism is treated in Wolverhampton? 

Personally, it feels like Wolverhampton is littered with racism within sport, and I believe more could be done by coaching staff and referees sanctioning players for racial misconduct. In school, racism is watched, but again, a lot more needs to be done to prevent the issue.

How reliable is the service for people to speak out about their mental health?

Mental health services aren’t reliable in Wolverhampton, as having suffered from mental health issues myself, I feel as if the waiting times for someone to get back to you are too long. I’ve personally had issues with trying to get someone to listen and talk about my problems.

If you’re interested in what Sarlotte has spoken about, drop us a DM on @MotiveWLV, or contact Lyfeproof UK to connect you.
