Wolves Community Trust is committed to providing the best Inclusion programmes for all our communities within Wolverhampton and the surrounding area, focusing on creating opportunities, encouraging innovation, promoting social inclusion and enhancing life skills particularly for those who may not have access to sport or any other positive activities for whatever reason. Our projects are based on the belief that engagement through sport can result in far more then developing sports skills, it can harness a sense of mutual respect and trust, widen horizons, raise aspirations and provide opportunities for local people regardless of race, sex, age or creed.
Our innovative Inclusion programmes target hard to reach young people from areas of high deprivation and promote inclusion amongst disadvantaged and excluded communities. The purpose of these projects is to engage these young people and provide positive experiences in order to prevent them from becoming involved with or victims of crime and anti-social behaviour. Using the Wolverhampton Wanderers FC brand and predominantly the sport of football, we educate young people about issues that may affect them such as knife, gun and gang crime, drug and alcohol misuse and sexual health.
A vital part of our work is supporting our local community and by working with these young people, their families and local organisations. A large emphasis is put on them to not only giving back to their local community but also make it a better place for everyone who lives there.
