During the Conservative Party Conference in October, I was delighted to meet with the Football League Trust to hear about the positive impact that The Football League Trust and its 72 Football League Club Trusts are having on communities throughout the UK.

Using the power of football to improve people’s lives, every year The Football League Trust engages over 1.5million through sport to improve health, inspire education, reduce crime, increase participation and tackle many complex social issues like drug abuse and homelessness.

In Amber Valley, Derby County and Nottingham County deliver a range of health, education, inclusion and social impact programmes, which make a real difference to people’s wellbeing. Local football clubs are pillars of communities up and down the country and I’m grateful for the invaluable contribution they make to Amber Valley.
