Blackburn Rovers Community Trust (Registered Charity No. 1117122) is fully committed to offering all members of the local community access to the highest quality programme of grassroots football, education, inclusion initiatives and awareness projects to encourage off-field participation, success and enjoyment using the crest and brand name of Blackburn Rovers Football Club.
The power of football to engage, enthuse and motivate people irrespective of age, gender and ethnicity is now recognised on many stages. As a vehicle through which community cohesion in its broadest terms of ‘narrowing the gap’ in health, education, aspirations and opportunity can be addressed, the local draw of Blackburn Rovers and the unrivalled power of the brand to bring additional credibility cannot be underestimated.

Community Futures is a registered charity (702233) and company limited by guarantee (333713). Our legal name, Community Council of Lancashire, was adopted over 40 years ago to enable us to become a Rural Community Council. This provides us with a unique role in supporting rural community life in Lancashire.
Most of the work we do is rooted in our very first actions as a support agency. Our initial hands on support for unemployed men and their families in Manchester, the flag ship Brentwood House Recuperation Home for Mothers (which also gave refuge to Jewish families fleeing Poland) and an abundance of self-help programmes in some of the most deprived communities in Lancashire all helped to build our credibility and reputation for the work we do today.
Not a lot has changed. We make organisations, individuals and communities better.
This can be better at what they do themselves or for others, but ultimately everything we do has this as a goal. We see evidence of our achievements all over Lancashire, from the community volunteer we supported to take on her own services, to the community that is thriving because we saved its Playgroup.
