Welcome to Another Corner
Another Corner is a confidential cutting edge support and career development service for boxers supporting and working with them during and after their career has ended. We aim to ensure a smooth transition into a new career working with them to identify an occupation which they feel comfortable enough to explore and work towards.
Boxing is a very brutal sport which can sometimes end in fatality or severe brain injury. How many times have we heard of a boxer who has received life threatening injuries or has sadly had their lives taken in the ring for our entertainment, and the only option for their families is to have to set up a ‘Just Giving Account’ to pay for either their funeral expenses, money to help raise their children or to raise money to have their home adapted if the boxers bout resulted in severe head injuries.
Family Support for Boxers
We have in-house Family Support managers who will be assigned to work with families to ensure they receive appropriate benefits, have their home adapted and to apply for grants to help with their welfare, this service is desperately needed especially for families where the boxer was the main financial provider in the home.
Some boxers, when they retire open a gym or a business which sadly often fails, Another Corner will help them to plan and market their business or charity helping them to fundraise and to ensure it will be a success we will also explore other job or career opportunities and support them in that, we also offer family therapy to both boxer and their family if they need it and one-to-one therapy to help them transition from boxing into their chosen career path.
