Fleetwood Town Community Trust (FTCT) is a vibrant and active community project that aims to provide socially inclusive community, health and education engagement programmes which aim to make a difference to the lives of people within our communities.

Having successfully attained charitable status, the challenge for the trust is now to reach even more people and increase the role we play in the local community.

The Trust offers many diverse activities that aim to provide the people in Blackpool, Wyre and Fylde with the opportunities to participate and enjoy themselves in a fun, friendly environment.

The Trusts emphasis is placed on educating young people in life skills, promoting self-esteem, respect, sportsmanship, social inclusion, and healthy active lifestyles.

Here at Fleetwood Town we wholeheartedly support our community trust. They provide an excellent service to our local schools and outside agencies. We provide free tickets to support community initiatives giving many young people the chance to enjoy football, enhancing our ‘fans for the future’ philosophy. A quick look around Highbury Stadium on a match day is all you need to see the success of the scheme. We pride ourselves in how many children and families attend our home games and we will do all we can to make sure that support continues as the club develops.
