SPFL Trust
Introduction
The Scottish Professional Football League Trust works in partnership with the 42 professional football clubs in Scotland to create opportunities at the heart of our communities that bring people together and change lives for the better.

Pillars of Activity
 
Health
Activities which help promote and sustain health and fitness and which address health inequalities. 
 
Citizenship
Activities which support diversionary activity which identify those who might be at risk of crime, anti-social behaviour, drug and alcohol abuse and provide an attractive alternative focus and positive role models. 
 
Achievement
Activities which promote involvement in education or employment particularly among those who are at risk of dropping out or who have dropped out of education and employment processes.
 
Participation
Activities which increase the numbers of people actively involved in all forms of sport.
 
Current Projects
 
Football Fans in Training: Aimed at men aged between 35-65 with waist size at least 38 inches, this is a 12 week physical activity and healthy eating programme designed to help men get fitter and lose weight, and to maintain these changes in the long term. Each week involves some physical activity training at a team’s home ground. A ‘classroom’ session gives fans advice about how to eat more healthily and easy steps they can take to get fitter. For season 2013/2014 16 clubs will be involved. For further information please send email to: ffit-spltrust@scotprem.com
 
Music Box: Aged 10-16 and interested in learning a musical instrument? Why not do it at your local football club? Music Box offers free music sessions every week at 14 of Scotland's top football clubs - and it's completely free! For further information please log onto www.splmusicbox.com.
 
Still Game: Project specifically aimed at our older citizens which promotes health and well-being. Sessions include light physical activity, healthy eating, personal safety and mental health awareness. For further information please send email to: spltrustadmin@scotprem.com
 
 
Further information on the work of the Trust will be uploaded in the coming weeks.
