Covid-19: Introducing Trusted to Support
Written By SPFL Trust Media Centre
The SPFL Trust has launched our “Trusted to Support” campaign, which will highlight the activity of clubs during the Covid-19 crisis.
As a nation, we find ourselves in unprecedented circumstances. It is vital to let people know about the support and resources that are available to help them at their local club.
The campaign aims to inspire people, players, staff, clubs and interested organisations to share and help each other. The initiatives that range over a variety of areas including; mental health, fitness and education, to name a few, are essential to us all at this time.
Every year our clubs engage in around 750,000 community engagements with people in their communities. Clearly, this is a very different and challenging time, but we’re seeing clubs supporting their communities on a whole range of ways.
The idea behind this simple campaign is to:
- Curate and highlight the work of our clubs – it’s a live, real-time campaign and we expect information to change regularly
- Highlight to the clubs themselves what’s going on, potentially enabling them to pool resources and work tactically in certain areas
- Engage with football supporters and broader stakeholders across the country to show that even in the toughest of times, our clubs are pulling together, in extraordinary ways
You can find a list of clubs and activities here.
Our CEO Nicky Reid said: “It is a challenging time, but our clubs and trusts have stood up and taken unprecedented actions to support their communities. This is why we always say that Scottish football is trusted to support.
“It is not only heartwarming to know so many people from across our sport care, but also that this support is vital to the people receiving it.
“I’m proud of our clubs and trusts, and we hope that our initiative can raise further awareness of these great acts of kindness during these difficult days and weeks.”
