Brentford FC Community Sports Trust have joined in the celebration of the hard work of young people across the country on the National Citizen Service by the EFL Trust. Our Trust engages thousands of young people aged 16 and 17, delivering National Citizen Service (NCS), programme funded by the Government. This is replicated by other community organisations across the country.
The EFL Trust, the charitable arm of the EFL, oversees the work of club community organisations and spent time last week rounding up the work done on the NCS programme. Our Trust joined in with the own congratulations. Hounslow's Mayor then offered his own words of thanks, having met some of those involved.
This year's programmes have affected by the Covid-19 outbreak. This summer teenagers aged 15-17, responded by volunteering thousands of hours, to help rebuild their local community with ‘Keep Doing Good’ by NCS. Those due to go away this summer on NCS volunteered in their local community to plan and deliver a social action project, leaving a positive impact by supporting local food banks, care homes or helping local charities get back up running.
Through the English Football League Trust, over 1.8 million hours of voluntary work has been delivered addressing local and national issues which young people are passionate about such as mental health, the environment and plastic waste. In partnership with EFL Trust, Brentford FC Community Sports Trust won the contract to deliver NCS from 2020 onwards joining 65 delivery partners that will be managed by EFL Trust.
