Blackburn Rovers Community Trust are delighted to confirm the release of their very first Impact Report, highlighting the breadth of their achievements over the past full calendar year.
The document is released in both electronic format and as a 44-page glossy brochure, which will shortly be on its way to local schools, voluntary organisations, businesses and any other groups who wish to learn more about the extent of our offering and the valued work that we undertake for the benefit of more than 42,000 participants every year.
The report documents all the key information that a wider audience would like to know about the Community Trust, ranging from a guide to the areas in which we deliver, the staff we employ, statistics relating to the projects we offer and a range of case studies to put our activities into context - one even containing an admission from a participant that our inclusion work saved his life.
The breadth of work undertaken by the Community Trust extends to over 40 different projects and the charitable organisation invested over £1m into its activities during 2016; the effect of which can be seen within the many pages of the report.
Gary Robinson, chief executive officer of Blackburn Rovers Community Trust, is part of the team that has spent a considerable period bringing the document to life, and can't wait to share it with the public to demonstrate the positive change that his organisation can facilitate. He explained:
"We're very proud of our achievements over the course of the year we've reviewed and this Impact Report is our chance to make sure that people are aware of who we are, what we do, and why we do it.
"Even with 44 pages of information, there is still far more that we do that couldn't make the finished publication because there's so much to include, but we hope that it gives a positive highlights package for everyone that reads it.
"We are driven by the mission statement, visions and core values that are explained early on in this report, and these help to create the ethos by which we undertake all of our work for the benefit of the community in Blackburn with Darwen, Lancashire and even further afield for special projects."
Copies of the Impact Report will be made available from the Blackburn Rovers Indoor Centre and reception areas around Ewood Park within the next week, or you can browse it now by downloading it via this link.
