The EFL Trust is the charitable arm of the English Football League (EFL) and was established in 2008 to oversee the remarkable and diverse work of EFL’s Club Community Organisations (CCOs).
Our vision is ‘Stronger, Healthier, More Active Communities.’
We use the power of the Club badge and the affinity countless numbers of people have to their team, to deliver a wide range of community initiatives focusing on raising people’s aspirations and quality of life.
Our core purpose remains to support the CCOs in our network to help us achieve our vision.
We focus on:
- Improving health and wellbeing
- Raising aspirations and realising potential
- Building stronger, more cohesive communities
The network engages with over 880,000 participants every year, has over 3,500 working on CCO delivered projects and invests over £59m in their community every year.
The EFL Trust aims to support the network by securing programmes for our CCOs to deliver significant impact in their communities.
The impact that our Clubs and Community Organisations have in the community is significant and unparalleled. To find out more about who we reach and work with and the impact this has, click here.
