Charity information

CITY Community Trust

CITY Community Trust is Exeter’s leading health and wellbeing charity, working in partnership with Exeter City Football Club. While football is our beating heart, our work in the community has grown to extend far beyond.

Our health, education, wellbeing and physical activity programmes reach more than 45,000 members of our community each year. Today, around 48 per cent of those programmes are not about football.

Founded 2007

  • Mission statement

    To provide inspiring sports and physical activity opportunities to our community through sport, education, health and wellbeing and inclusion programmes.

    From our Exeter running events to our football for the homeless sessions, at CITY Community Trust we use physical activity to bring communities together and engage with people of all ages - from three to 83.

    As a charity, we take our responsibility of measuring our impact very seriously. Independent research has shown that for every £1 spent to deliver the charity’s programmes, over £10 is generated in cost savings.

    The various areas we work in across include-
    Health and Wellbeing, Social Inclusion, Women and Girls, Education and Youth Engagement, Sports Participation, Primary School Curriculum Enhancement and Facility Management. We engage 45 primary schools, have over 3000 children registered on Tiny Tots, over 600 people accessing NCS and 13 different projects for anyone living with physical or mental disabilities. We also have over 5000 children accessing our holiday courses throughout the year.

    We work with some of the hardest to reach members of society – helping people to change their lives and building safer, stronger, more respectful communities.
