Southend United
Community & Educational Trust

Education through football

Learn what we are all about

The best way to really understand what Southend United Community & Educational Trust is all about is to watch and learn…

We’re incredibly proud of our affiliation with Southend United Football Club, but the Community & Educational Trust is about so much more than football. We strive to engage with and enrich the lives of people of all ages, abilities, backgrounds and interests. We use our varied Sports Participation, Health & Wellbeing, Education & Training and Community Cohesion programmes to reach people throughout South-East Essex – offering something for everyone!

We are driven by our Million Mission – our commitment to engage with 1-million people between 2016 and 2026. Be one in a million, go on – get involved! #MillionMission.
