FC Halifax Town Foundation have been awarded a grant from the National League Trust.

The non-profit arm of the Football Club has received a grant that will provide the financial support to consolidate and drive forward projects in the local community.

The National League Trust is a partnership between the National League, the Premier League and the Professional Footballers’ Association Charity.  The Premier League and the PFA Charity have committed to support the Trust until 2025.

They will each contribute to a donation of £1.2 million a year over this period, this allows the National League Trust to help National League member clubs develop their community programmes.  The support comes in the form of grant aid and development advice with the ultimate ambition of encouraging clubs to become more involved in their community.

Head of Community, Junior and Youth Football Development, Steve Nichol commented: “We are thankful for the ongoing support received from The National League Trust and sponsors, RSA and Megson Utilities who have continued to support the Foundation for a prolonged period.

“A big focus of this grant will be to increase participation levels, particularly girls (aged 7-15) and boys (aged 14-16) in the Calderdale community.  The funding will also support the delivery of healthy holiday camps ensuring the camps can run every school holiday (outside of HAF funding).

“The award of the grant marks a positive period for the community programme, with the conversation to a registered charity and engaging hundreds of young people every week.  I’m excited for what lies ahead.”
