We are passionate about being at the heart of a stronger, healthier and more equal community and this document represents our ‘direction of travel’ for doing precisely that.
Over the past year and a half, the Community Trust has supported our community through the coronavirus pandemic by putting in place a programme of emotional, physical & practical support. You can read more about the impact the Trust has had in in the Community: Our Impact Report.’
This new strategy was produced after extensive consultation with funders, partners, stakeholders and FTCT staff. It details how we will tackle the social, health and educational challenges and create tangible, measurable changes in each of our four focus areas: Community Engagement, Wellbeing, Inclusion and Education & Skills.
We want to continue to make a difference to local communities through the power of sport and the brand of Fleetwood Town Football Club for the duration of this three-year strategy. The document also highlights the values which bind together all those at Fleetwood Town and the Community Trust.
Matt Hilton, Chief Executive, said: “This strategy is an important outline of where we are as a trust and where we are going. As Fleetwood and the surrounding areas navigate a route out of the pandemic, we have a real opportunity to build a healthier and more equal place with strong community cohesion at the core. We are committed to playing our part in making this happen. The past 19 months or so have not been an easy journey, however I have never been prouder of the caring and collaborative team of staff we have at the Trust. Over the next few years, I am excited to see how they can continue to transform lives across our local community.
I hope that, as people read this strategy, they are inspired by the vision we’ve set out. We rely on the generous support and collaboration of individuals and organisations with similar aims. We would love people to come with us on this journey whether that’s by supporting us financially (you can do so here), volunteering their time and involving their organisation in partnering with us.” Please email communitytrust@Fleetwoodtownfc.com if you would like to work with us further.
We would like to thank all those who helped shape this new 3-year strategic plan, with special thanks to the Board of Trustees and Staff Team.
