FA Director of Football Development, Sir Trevor Brooking launched the 'Cheltenham Town Community, Education and Sporting Trust' in October 2007.

The Trust is a registered charity and a company limited by guarantee. The Trust has a Board of nine Trustees who between them have a wide knowledge and understanding of charitable organisations and business in general. The Trust also has an operational team of eighteen full and part time staff delivering the range of services.

On average the Trust engages 1,500 children, young people, adults and families per week. The activities delivered include:

After School Clubs
A ten-week programme delivering football, cricket, tennis, athletics, hockey and netball.

Holiday Soccer Courses
Our very popular courses are delivered at a number of venues in Cheltenham, Gloucester and the Stroud area.

Match Day Visits
On match days we invite schools, youth football teams and community groups to take part in our Match Day Visits. The visit includes a pre match coaching session, a ground tour and a ticket to watch the game.

In addition we deliver funded projects under our Health, Education and Social Inclusion themes.

Mission Statement
Cheltenham Town Community Education & Sporting Trust aims to use the power of sport to inspire and motivate children, young people, adults and families across Gloucestershire and the Cotswolds with the intention to provide every person with the opportunity to participate in all activities regardless of their individual circumstances.

The Trust’s aim is to:

  • Remove barriers that prevent individuals and communities accessing activities and opportunities aimed at improving physical and psychological well-being
  • Use football as the catalyst for regeneration and crime reduction by raising people’s self-esteem and altering life chances through inclusion and participation
  • Develop an integrated model of community provision that will bring people together from a range of backgrounds to share a common experience
  • Encourage active and healthy life styles by creating opportunities that will include learning skills, improving health and having fun and enjoyment with others
  • Generate grass roots investment in people and facilities that reflects the needs of the community
  • Bring all aspects of the Football club’s community work under one umbrella
  • Promote and raise the profile of the club’s community work through the Trust
