I launched The Drake Foundation in 2014. This is a not-for-profit organisation committed to improving evidence-based measures for the understanding of concussion injuries in sport. This includes possible long-term implications of repeated head impacts. We also study the effects of retiring from professional sport, with the aim of helping participants to smooth the transition to the next phase of their lives.
In 2015, I established The Drake Calleja Trust to help exceptional musicians from underprivileged backgrounds at the start of their careers. YolanDa Brown heads up a section of the Trust on non-classical music genres: the DrakeYolanDa Award.
I am an amateur artist who does portraits to help me empathise with those involved in my philanthropic ventures.
