A new Corporate Plan has been published by the Chesterfield FC Community Trust, setting out the organisation’s vision for the next five years.
The 20-page publication outlines the five key areas covered by the Trust: Education, Health & Wellbeing, Activities, Heritage and Facilities.
Mike Goodwin, chairman of the Community Trust, explained the important role played by the organisation in the community. He said: “The Trust uses the brand of Chesterfield Football Club to market projects connected to football and wider sports but equally importantly to drive programmes not usually associated with football to the wider community.
“I think we are just touching on what the Trust can bring to the wider community and hope this plan shows how far we can develop the potential that made me want to be a part of this significant undertaking.”
Trust CEO John Croot explained the process of putting the plan together. “After meetings were held with our trustees and senior staff, we sent the plan out for consultation with our partners, to find out what people want from us and what they hope we can deliver as a charity,” he said.
“We are proud of the growth of the organisation, which is recognised around the town and employs around 50 people. The staff are supported by a board of trustees who bring a range of skills and who have played a significant role in formulating the new Corporate Plan.”
