In 2019 Brentford FC Community Sports Trust became part of the European Football for Development Network (EFDN). The network consists of professional football clubs, leagues and FAs who are committed to their communities and social responsibilities and have the passion to cooperate and engage on a European level. EFDN is helping in the ongoing battle against discrimination.

Show Racism the Red Card is an anti-racism education charity, which provides educational workshops, training sessions, multimedia packages, and a whole host of other resources, all with the purpose of tackling racism in society. Football is used to shine a light on a topic that affects people all over the world. Since 2019 the Trust has worked with thousands of participants across the local area and within local clubs to discuss diversity and inclusion.

Trust staff currently deliver the programme at Nishkam School West London where we engage over 180 participants. The school is now enterting phase two of the programme. And as a reward for completing two parts of the three-phased programme, the school has been invited to take part in this year’s Gunnersbury Cup, a football tournament hosted at our new venue Gunnersbury Park Sports Hub.
