The Tigers Sport and Education Trust was founded in 1990 under the name of Hull City Football in the Community, with support from the Professional Footballers’ Association. It rebranded in 2007 to highlight its charitable status.
Directed by a board of trustees and governed by the league in which Hull City AFC play, the trust’s priority is a high standard of organisation and delivery within the sports development and education sector.
The trust uses sport to tackle a wide range of issues, such as health problems, unemployment and crime, and is a strong and very experienced organisation in the field of using football for good.
The proposal includes:
- weekly football activities for 240 refugees in Hull,
- football festivals as opportunities for integration, and
- language skills and coach education workshops as additional opportunities for the beneficiaries.
240 children and young adults
