The Brentford FC Football in the Community Programme, established in 1987, was amongst the pioneering programmes aimed at engaging football clubs with their communities.
Thirty years on and the Trust, 4 times winners of the Football League Community Club of the Year award, is now employing 34 contracted staff and over 50 coaches. In 2015-16, BFC CST engaged 11,142 participants and delivered 6402 sessions across four key areas - sports participation, health, education and inclusion.
Now into our 13th year as a Charitable Sports Trust we continue to develop as one of the leading providers of sports, education and employment opportunities in West London. It really is about more than just football: we are about participation, inclusion and engagement offering a portfolio of programmes that educate, motivate, involve and inspire.
