The National League Trust supports community programmes at clubs who are members of the three divisions of the National League.

This support comes in the form of grant aid and development advice. Our aim is to encourage every National League club to become involved in their community.

Projects range from music, dance and other arts activities, encouraging volunteering, work with young people not in education or training (NEETs), helping disability groups to play sport, and creating educational initiatives for both adult and children – including literacy and numeracy programmes. There has been work with isolated community groups, green projects, information about healthy eating and lifestyle, and working in partnership with schools to deliver football coaching and other initiatives.

Our grant aid programme is made possible by the generous support of the Trust’s funding partners: the Premier League and the Professional Football Association. Since October 2010 both bodies have committed annual support as part of a three year funding agreement. This is currently £1.2m each year until August 2019, bringing the total contribution to the charity to £7.8m.

This website is designed to showcase our work and help to member clubs develop and improve their projects, including guidance on how and when to apply for funding.
