DOVER ATHLETIC COMMUNITY TRUST is the official charity of Dover Athletic FC.
We are very pleased and proud to announce that DOVER ATHLETIC COMMUNITY TRUST has been incorporated and was awarded charitable status by the Charity Commission on 23rd August 2018.
This is the next step in the evolution of Dover Athletic’s community initiatives. As a result of the football club’s membership of the National League the new trust is affiliated to the National League Trust, who in turn are supported by the respective Premier League and EFL Trusts.
The trust will deliver creative, innovative and diverse engagement initiatives using the power of Dover Athletic to motivate, educate and inspire people in communities to improve life chances.
The vision – for children, young people and adults within our community to be confident, active, healthy and able to determine and achieve their own personal goals and aspirations.
The mission – to enhance people’s lives by using the unique strength of Dover Athletic Football Club to engage, enable and empower people.
A board of trustees has been established to run the DOVER ATHLETIC COMMUNITY TRUST.
The football club is represented by two members of the club board, being Jim Parmenter and the trust’s newly appointed Chairman, Simon Gretton.
Our independent trustees are John Sheather (Treasurer), Vikki Pawley (Safeguarding) and Jade Jaenicke (Secretary).
The team together bring a breadth of knowledge, excitement and expectation to make a real difference to our local community in Dover and the surrounding villages.
