The power of youth has been celebrated during #iwill Week 2021. #iwill week is an annual celebration of the work young people, #iwill ambassadors and champions, and #iwill partners are leading up and down the UK. The EFL Trust has been among those taking part in the week, which ran from 22 to 26 November.
The EFL Trust is the charitable arm of the EFL and was established in 2008 to oversee the work of EFL club community organisations, such as Brentford FC Community Sports Trust. It is responsible for distributing core funding from the Premier League and The PFA to each CCO and highlights community work done by clubs across the country. Our Trust has worked with the EFL Trust for more than a decade and many projects are still ongoing.
Over the past week the EFL Trust has been sharing stories of the inspirational work done by young people to make a positive difference in communities. This includes stories about work done on the National Citizen Service, which gives young people life experiences and opportunities to work in the local community. There were also updated on the EFL Youth Trust forum.
