National Citizen Service
“At NCS Trust, we are proud to work with EFL Trust. They have delivered life changing Nation Citizen Service experiences for young people across the country since our pilots in 2011. Their reach into communities, their passion and their commitment have made them great partners over the past four years as NCS has reached over 100,000 young people. We are excited to be working with them in the years ahead as we reach our goal of engaging one million young people by 2020.”
Every Player Counts: Sports participation for all
“The 25 clubs around England involved in the Every Player Counts programme cover the length and breadth of the country, from Plymouth to Carlisle and Southend to Shrewsbury and are located in a mixture of built-up metropolitan boroughs and more rural locations – which gives the programme as wide a focus as possible.
”The club trusts are addressing specific gaps and needs in disability football within their area which is delivered in a way that made the most of their existing skills.”
Open University BA (Hons) Business Management (Sport and Football)
“Right from the start it’s been really powerful. EFL Trust have been able to open up access to players and stadia as well as a range of people that can talk about the business of football. This really helps bring this new degree to life”
Mayor of London
“The Mayor of London’s Sports Team have been working closely with EFL Trust for over a year as part of the Mayor of London’s Sports Participation Fund.
”This fund aims to encourage sports participation in women and girls and reduce inactivity. Through their extensive network, the EFL Trust have delivered a number of successful programmes that have been able to reach deep into the heart of the local community to meaningfully engage hard-to-reach groups of women and girls who were previously inactive.”
Professional Footballers Association
“In 2016, the Professional Footballers Association (PFA) and clubs from the English Football League celebrated a partnership spanning 30 years of commitment to Community Programmes across the country.
”The emphasis on Player’s Social Responsibilities has been a key factor to effect positive change in our communities and society as a whole.”
