Using the power of Plymouth Argyle Football Club to change lives.
WE are proud to be the official charity for Plymouth Argyle Football Club. Argyle Community Trust uses the prestige of football and the reach of the club to inspire, engage and help people of all ages, achieve their full potential.
Argyle Community Trust has a clear vision, along with our national partners, to be an active, inspirational and inclusive community hub for the South West region. We aim to have a positive impact on a range of groups within society and to provide the local community with the opportunity to explore their full potential, improve their life chances and aspirations through the power of football and Plymouth Argyle FC.
We are hugely proud to say we have changed lives and inspired people over the past 20 years and envisage this to continue for many years to come. We offer a large range of activities and programmes from football to nationally recognised educational qualifications, from health to social action and disability.
To ensure we remain focused and true to our aims we have a strategy showcasing what we do and how we we intend to continue and build upon our work.
Our Community Strategy builds on Argyle Community Trust’s desire to make a change to people’s lives using the power of Plymouth Argyle Football Club. The populations that we serve face barriers in relation to health, well-being, education, employment, levels of physical activity, high deprivation in some areas and low attainment levels.
Through the work undertaken as part of our last strategy, through research and consultation there is clear evidence to indicate our work is needed within our community. National, regional and local plans reflect the work that we undertake with the aim of breaking down the barriers stated above.
