The Football League Trust has launched a new website that highlights the power of football to tackle some of the biggest issues facing society.
“Importantly the new website celebrates the work of the community trusts, whilst they are well known for their traditional role of increasing participation in sports, they are also running projects that are tackling big issues such as childhood obesity, dementia, heart disease and anti-social behaviour.”
Mike Evans, Director of Operations at the Football League Trust, comments, “Clubs are based in the heart of their communities and have a reach that enables them to engage with over 1.5 million people each year.”
www.FLTrust.co.uk highlights the work of the Football League Trust who bring together the Community Trusts associated with the 72 Football League Clubs. Between them the community trusts invest over £44million on projects in their community under four key themes sport, education, inclusion and health to ensure football is a catalyst for positive change in many different ways.
