Argyle Community Trust aims to have a positive impact on a range of groups within society and to provide the local community with the opportunity to explore their full potential, improve their life chances and aspirations through the power of football and Plymouth Argyle FC. They offer a wide range of activities and programmes from football to nationally recognised educational qualifications, from health to social action and disability. The populations that they serve face barriers in relation to health, well-being, education, employment, levels of physical activity, high deprivation in some areas and low attainment levels.
The scale of what they do may be big and complex, but our aim is simple – to provide the best outcome for every child, no matter who they are or what they have been through. Barnardo’s help children through the trauma of sexual abuse and exploitation. They provide support for young people in care. They give children caring for a loved one the help and support they deserve. Their specialist workers support families through domestic abuse, mental health problems, prison sentences, asylum seeking and much more. Barnardo’s also amplify the voices of young people to influence Government on the issues that affect their lives.
