Wakefield Community Trust
Registered Charity 1119077
Wakefield Trinity Wildcats has played an integral part in the life of the people of Wakefield and the surrounding area since its formation in 1873. Sport has the unique ability to raise the spirits and unite different ages, sexes, ethnicities and social economic groups in a shared passion.
We pride ourselves on being a community-focused club and enjoy the responsibilities we have to engage with the people of Wakefield and the surrounding area through the work of the Wakefield Wildcats Community Trust. Its formation is the next step in the evolution of our community programme. It will Engage, Educate and Inspire creating positive change in our local society.
As a club we feel that by utilising the unique engagement ability of our staff and players through the Wakefield Wildcats Community Trust we can make a significant difference to the people of this district. We are excited by the opportunities we have to raise the aspirations of the people we reach through the work of the Trust.
The Wakefield Community Trust was established in 2013. The major objective of the Wakefield Wildcats Community Trust is to provide education, physical activity, and healthy lifestyle support for the children, young people and disadvantaged youth of Wakefield.
The Wakefield Community Trust in partnership with Heart Research UK, NHS Wakefield District Primary Care Trust, Sport England, People's Postcode Trust, BIG Lottery Fund, Heritage Lottery Fund, Subway and Eric France will provide programmes that will encourage participation, increase education and promote healthy lifestyles using positive community role models.
