If Carlsberg did Community Football........It would (probably) be called Charlton Athletic Community Trust
25 years ago, as Charlton Athletic Football Club returned to the Valley, together with the Professional Footballers Association, a trust was set up to deliver community football in the local area. Charlton Athletic Community Trust was born.
From its humble start with a few bags of kit, some balls, sessional staff and volunteers, fast forward 25 years to see a Trust with 95 permanent staff, over 100 sessional staff, delivering programmes to thousands of people across London, the South East and South Africa!
This is a Trust that never stands still, continues to grow year on year, and can not only say how good it is, but can prove it! Acting and thinking like a business is one of the key success factors for the Trust. After extensive research and professional support its can now demonstrate a Social Return on Investment, the numbers are really quite impressive!
£31.3m Net benefit
1: 6.89 Social Return on Investment
The Trust now delivers and measures across a broad range of National targets and activities including; Education & Employment, Health Improvement, Reducing Crime, Mental Health, Disability, Equality Diversity & Inclusion, Sport for Development, Social Action & Enterprise and Youth Services.
Its continued growth and success means even more opportunity to change peoples lives through the power of sport, and further opportunity for businesses to invest, support and jointly celebrate positive social impact!
