The EFL Trust
The EFL Trust is a registered charity that governs, advises and audits the 72 charitable trusts associated with the professional clubs of The English Football League. These 72 member trusts have a combined turnover of over £35 million, and 2,500 members of staff who deliver a wide range of projects under The Trust’s main themes, which are sport, health, education and inclusion.
In the past twelve months these projects have engaged with over 1.3 million people of all ages, in projects ranging from sport for children, employment skills for the homeless, drug rehabilitation and estate based projects to reduce anti-social behaviour.
In addition to helping its members secure funding on a local and regional basis, The Trust brings in central funding of around £8 million from a variety of private, public and third sector sources which it allocates to its members as core funding and for specific projects.
Sky Blues in the Community is one of the 72 football league charitable trusts. This means that whilst accountable to our Board of Trustees, we also work very closely with the EFL Trust to promote and expand our charitable activities – at the same time having our work, policies and procedures and business plans scrutinised by the EFL Trust to ensure that we are fit for purpose.
