Community Engagement

We use the power of sport to bring people together from all walks of life.

Last year, over 10,400 young people participated with the NCS EFL Trust network.

The scheme includes young people developing a community project and putting it into action, responding to the needs or issues within their area.

“Young people from our intervention programmes attend and help to set up the session.

”This session enables our young people to mix with the older generation. It really helps nuture a sense of empathy and compassion.”

“Team Talk has been very good for me because it has given me a reason to get out of the house since I stopped working.

”It has also allowed me to be involved in projects like Sporting Memories and helping organise the Steel Gala Day…it gives you the chance to meet other people who are in similar circumstances to yourself.”

  • David Bradley, a Middlesbrough FC Foundation Team Talk participant

Bristol City’s first Social Inclusion project was a huge success with a staggering 316 young people taking part in sessions.
