Trustees

  • Management Board
  • Unpaid
  • Glasgow
  • Closing 6th April 2022

At the SPFL Trust we believe in the power to use football for good; to get to and inspire change in the heart of communities in a way that others can’t.

It’s about the extraordinary, unifying way that the football community brings people together in friendship, and enables them to find the courage to overcome barriers to make a difference.

Our work is primarily delivered through a network of community organisations - most of whom are registered charities - associated with SPFL clubs.

Through these partnerships we have been successful in delivering positive public health outcomes since 2010, something we are hugely proud of.

This is an exciting time for our charity, with an ambitious new strategy emerging in 2022 after detailed analysis over the last 12 months.

Our approach will focus on some of the challenges Scotland faces as it moves beyond the pandemic.

Almost one in five people already live in poverty in Scotland and for children it is worse at one in four. Our recent research tells us that those living near an SPFL club are even more likely to experience poverty.

The success of our partnerships and our experience and understanding of the unique role football can play, gives us the confidence that we can step up.

We also know that our partner community trusts and associated SPFL clubs can and will play a critical role in what happens in the years ahead.

They’re nimble and action focused, and so we believe that working together we can all be champions for change.

Now we are looking to recruit new trustees to join our board, to help us achieve our ambitious new strategy.

In doing so, trustees will have the opportunity to make strategic decisions, learn new skills and most importantly help to improve the lives of people across Scotland. It’s a brilliant opportunity – and you will also be part of a fantastic team.
