Meet The Staff

We currently have a fabulous member of paid staff at Active8. Have a scroll to meet them and see what they say about Active8 and what they do.


John Sweeting - Acceler8 Youth Worker/Project Leader.
Motive8 Independent Living Skills Coach/Project Leader.

Hi, I’m John. I started volunteering for Active8 in 2010. I have enjoyed all the activities I have been involved in but my favourite experience up to now has been taking a group to the London Paralympics and sneaking into the athletes area with one of the young people! I enjoyed volunteering with charity so much that I left being a PE teacher to become the Acceler8 and Motive8 youth worker. In my spare time I enjoy outdoor activities such as surfing and hiking, watching and playing sport and watching films and TV.

I am happy to be working for Active8. Since moving to Cornwall 17 years ago, I have worked with families of children and young people with disabilities and I am excited to be working for a charity that has such a good reputation in Cornwall.
I have four children aged between 27 and 13, all boys. My house when they were all at home and younger was a very loud one! The older two are now living in Plymouth and Bristol but we still see them a lot. Our third boy is 16, has a disability, and fantastic and our amazing fourth boy is a typical 13 year old - need I say more! My lone female companion is a basset hound who I adore.
