A registered charity running community sports and educational activities on behalf of Watford FC.
Watford FC’s Community Sports and Education Trust is a registered charity (Charity No: 1102239), having gained charitable status in April 2004.
Being registered with the Charities Commission the Trust is governed in accordance with charitable law. A board of Trustees exists, further details of which are given under the heading ‘Patrons and Trustees’ which forms part of the ‘About Us’ section on this website. The Trustees form an integral part of the Trust moving forward both in relation to decision making and in meeting its operational aims and objectives.
Due to the success and popularity of the Trust’s work it now employs 21 full time staff and in excess of 50 sessional staff. This has enabled the Trust to strengthen and broaden its partnerships with a wide variety of individuals and organisations. The Trust currently runs activity programmes within Hertfordshire and its surrounding areas, as well as in the London Boroughs of Harrow and Hillingdon.
With a dedicated, committed and extremely passionate team of staff the Trust is able to not only develop a wide range of creative projects but also deliver them to a high quality. As a Trust we currently focus on four key themes which are Sports Participation, Social Inclusion, Health and Education. Each of our community projects and activities fits under one of these themes or cuts across a number of them. In addition to this we are also involved in and are able to help organisations who are developing local community facilities.
Although we have traditionally been seen as purely a football provider, this is certainly no longer the case as you will see under the ‘Sports’ section of this website.
