Derby County Community Trust – Registered charity number 1123520
“Every football club wants to see its team winning and achieving success, but I’ve always believed there is so much more than what happens out on the football pitch. This includes how we work, how we support, how we deliver and how much we’re committed to working and supporting our local community off of it.
“Derby County Football Club has the ability to engage with people, raising hopes and aspirations, as well as improving the lives of the people of Derbyshire.
“We are incredibly proud of the work that the Derby County Community Trust carries out and the role that it plays across Derbyshire to connect the football club with the communities that we are a part of.
“Through the diverse range of programmes delivered in 2016 by the Community Trust, we have seen people get healthier and more active and attainment levels raise in schools. We have developed talent pathways and helped to improve our local communities in an ever-increasing range of different ways.
“Our work doesn’t finish there. We will continue to ensure that the Derby County Community Trust’s delivery programme is underpinned by the very highest aims and objectives and clearly demonstrates a commitment from Derby County Football Club to enhance the lives of people in the communities we serve.”
