BURTON Albion Community Trust have released their ‘Inspiring Our Communities’ 2017-18 Impact Report.

The report highlights delivery across the scopes of work of School Sport, Football Development, Health & Wellbeing, Inclusive Sport and Education & Learning.  The report is the first one following the 2017-2020 strategy being put into place.

BACT’s strategy came about following extensive consultation both internally and externally and taking into consideration local, regional and national policies across all the scopes of work that are engaged with.

This was all put into place following feedback from key stakeholders, participants and the existing workforce by using online surveys, meetings and focus groups.

The first year of the delivery of the strategy has been an exciting challenge, as well as an extremely successful one for BACT, which the 2017-18 Impact Report displays.

Matt Hancock, Head of Community, said: "We have a clear focus on getting better at everything we do. We have an unbelievable workforce and one that I am very proud of.

"They genuinely make a difference to people’s lives every single day and on top of this are proud to be representing Burton Albion Football Club as well as our wonderful charity."

BACT’s strategic aims are to:

- Deliver high quality

- Create a positive journey;

- Measure and evidence impact

- Govern and lead effectively.

John Jackson, Chairman of BACT, said: "The successful delivery in year one has ensured that we are on our way to achieve our mission of 'Making a difference to our communities through the power of sport and brand of Burton Albion FC.'

"Since our inception in September 2010, our engagement numbers have grown together with our investment in the local community.

"This last year we have continued to engage these numbers and we have built an excellent infrastructure in both staff and facilities that is enabling us now to gain the sufficient evidence of the impact that we make on our local communities."
