About KTFC Community Trust
Kettering Town FC Community Trust understands the role that good physical health and wellbeing has in improving the quality for life for children and adults, regardless of individual differences.
The trust provides a range of opportunities for people in Kettering and surrounding areas to improve physical and mental health, improve community inclusion and education, and reduce involvement in negative activities including anti-social behaviour.
The community have always been hugely supportive of Kettering Football Club, and without that fan base, the club simply would not exist. The club felt there was an opportunity to give back to the local community and so the trust was formed and formally registered as a charity in November 2020.
The trust's recent charity registration means we can focus on delivering projects with, and for, our local community. Our association with Kettering Town Football Club gives our beneficiaries direct access to good quality coaches and facilities. We are wholly reliant on fundraising activities and the kind support of our community and grant providers to deliver these projects. Being a small community trust means we can adapt quickly to changes in the community and address local challenges. We work closely with our beneficiaries and other professionals to ensure our activities are accessible, inclusive and empower those that take part.
To offer the highest quality programmes to all members of the local community to improve their quality of life through physical activity, education, health and commuity inclusion.
To provide good quality and positive sporting experiences that meet the needs of our community.
Our work is guided and informed by our beliefs and commitments to:
We respect people, value diversity and are committed to equality.
We value and recognise the contribution of volunteers in supporting our work.
We strive for effective governance and continue to adapt to the communities changing needs.
We are committed to a culture of teamwork, collaboration and partnerships.
