Stoke City Football Club’s Community Trust was founded in 1989 and became a registered charity in 2004.
The Trust’s work is around engaging with people in the community to support them to realise their potential, both in their personal and professional development.
Sport plays an important role in getting people to be more active, helping create a positive impact on health and wellbeing. In particular the Trust uses football as a way to engage with people of all ages, abilities and social backgrounds. The Trust is committed to inclusion, promoting health and wellbeing, and improving education.
The staff team at Stoke City Community Trust are using the Rickter Scale® to engage with participants across the many areas they work in, including within schools and helping young adults undertake Lifelong Learning.
“All our Education staff are now trained to use the Rickter Scale. Great person-centred assessment tool to help support our young people to progress towards their goals.”
David Bartrum, Education & Lifelong Learning Manager at Stoke City Community Trust.
“I thoroughly enjoyed my visit to the Britannia Stadium to take such a motivated and professional team through Rickter Training to become licensed practitioners. Straight away they saw the value of Rickter in connecting with individuals, but also how it evidences the soft outcomes to show a person exactly how far they have come on their journey towards their goals. The group are keen to be able to use Rickter to demonstrate their outcomes and good practice for funders. We look forward to being ardent supporters.”
