Grantley Haynes | CEO
Grantley started The Wheeler Street Corporation as a way of truly reaching out to young people across Birmingham and the West Midlands. Engaging hard to reach young people and those marginalised in society by addiction, mental illness or other deep-rooted personal battles and helping them to live a positive life has been the focus of his career for over 15 years. His passion for music has seen Grantley manage and produce for well known international recording artists but nothing compares to the rewards gained from impacting peoples lives whether it’s through one to one mentoring, designing city-wide intervention programmes or advising public bodies on national and local policy.
