The Football League Trust is a national charity that uses the power of football to change people’s lives. The FLT unites the inspirational work delivered across England and Wales by the dedicated network of community trusts which are associated to the 72 Football League clubs. Last year they engaged with over 1.5million people using the power of football to improve health, inspire education, reduce crime, increase participation and tackle many difficult social issues like drug abuse and homelessness. The Trust tackles society’s greater goals by inspiring people through powerful projects built upon a foundation of four key themes: sport, education, inclusion and health.

‘Providing a progressive journey that hands over more responsibility to young people as the programme progresses and develops the leadership skills necessary to succeed in the workplace.’

First they spend time away from home enjoying instructor-led outdoor activities, bonding with teammates in an action-packed adventure tackling activities like coasteering, climbing & abseiling and kayaking.
