Important week for Community Trust

The Club and Ipswich Town Community Trust will be showcasing the work we undertake in the community in EFL's first Week of Action.

All 72 EFL clubs and Club Community Organisations will be highlighting their community work throughout the week.

Using the power of football, EFL Clubs and Club Community Organisations (CCOs) collectively invest over £59m in their communities every year, engaging with some of the most vulnerable members of society.

The Community Trust will showcase their community work this week, with player visits during the week, including:

- Walking Football 

- Adult disability sessions

- Community outreach work with local charities

- Premier League Primary Stars at local school

- Refugee football session

- Hollesley Bay, Twinning Project 

- Play On grassroots football

In 2021, EFL Clubs and CCOs were recognised at both the Leaders Sports Awards and Sports Business Awards for the important and unique role they played in supporting their local communities during the pandemic.

Rick Parry, Chair of the EFL, said: “EFL Clubs are embedded in the towns and cities from which they take their name and this bond is strengthened by the life changing initiatives they run across England and Wales every single day.

"The EFL Week of Action is an opportunity for us to celebrate this invaluable work and demonstrate the remarkable difference clubs have on their communities away from the pitch.”
