Welcome to AFC Bournemouth Community Sports Trust
The Community Sports Trust was formed in 2007 from Football in the Community and continued a working partnership with football league club AFC Bournemouth. The Trust has grown rapidly and delivers sessions across Bournemouth, Poole and Christchurch and has continued their growth by opening a branch on the Isle of Wight. Overall, the Trust is delivering over 90 sessions a week to over 2400 children.
The sessions are varied and activities adapted to each school and age group, whilst working to the Football League Trust’s four main themes; Sports Participation, Health and Well-being, Education and Social inclusion. Many of the sessions are football-based, however the Trust’s staff are qualified in a variety of sports allowing us to offer multi-sport sessions as well. All of these points enabling the Trust to become the number one deliverer of sports development across Dorset and Hampshire.
The Community Sports Trust gained Charitable Status in 2008 (Charity Number: 1122693). The Trust is still a self-funding, non-profit organisation, so all donations and funding will be committed to the continued growth and development of the Trust.
