CITY Community Trust is Exeter’s leading health and wellbeing charity, working in partnership with Exeter City Football Club.
While football is our beating heart, our work in the community has grown to extend far beyond. Our health, education, wellbeing and physical activity programmes reach over 45,000 members of our community each year and around 48% of those programmes are not football.
A full-time staff of over 30 and a casual staff of 70 plus are delivering on the frontline daily, spending around 22,000 hours out in the community every year striving to improve the life chances of all.
As a charity, we take our responsibility of measuring our impact very seriously. Independent research has shown that for every £1 spent to deliver the charity’s programmes, over £10 is generated in cost savings.
Our mission is to provide inspiring sports and physical activity opportunities to all sections of the community based on the themes of Sport, Education, Health & Wellbeing and Inclusion. We use sport and physical activity to bring communities together, engaging with young people, getting to youngsters who had previously proven difficult to reach and guiding them with a clear passion towards a range of healthy and constructive activities.
We provide the motivation and the spark and they reach for the stars in more ways than one.
In achieving this our vision is to “build safer, stronger, more respectful communities through the development of people’s potential”.
