“The Trust gives a tremendous boost to National League clubs. Many of them have been working with their local communities for a number of years, mostly supported from their own funds, and we aim to encourage others to start working in this way. We hope that the support that the Trust can give will allow more clubs to grow and sustain their work. We do not underestimate the important part football has to play in helping local people improve their lives – through sport, volunteering and education. The National League Trust is there to encourage more worthwhile projects.
