Catch22 Project Manager Rewarded with an MBE

Receiving an MBE for his work with young people in Nottingham, was the last thing on Morris Samuel’s mind when he started the Catch22 Unity project.


What started as a way of steering young people away from ‘postcode’ gang rivalries using football, involving just 24 youngsters, has now grown to a multi-faceted project that reaches one thousand 11 to 25 year olds across Nottingham.


Speaking about getting the Honour, Morris Samuels says:


'I’m just an average guy on the street. You don’t expect it and I had to read the letter three or four times before it sank in.'

Catch22 Unity uses fun, physical activities, like football, combined with social education within a framework that promotes community cohesion and offers education, training and employment opportunities

92 per cent of those enrolled have achieved a pass with 62 per cent moving on to training, education, employment or volunteering.
