The Clarets Trust is an Industrial & Provident Society set up in September 2004. We are a voluntary, democratic and not-for-profit organisation run by supporters, for supporters.
There are now over 130 Supporters’ Trusts up and down the country all making a difference at their football and rugby league clubs and in their communities. The Clarets Trust is still a very young organisation. By forging partnerships with prominent local and national businesses and community organisations and running events, we aim to raise the profile of our work whilst also helping local communities and charities.
The Clarets Trust has three main aims as stated in the constitution:
• To buy shares in Burnley Football Club to promote supporter involvement
• To give fans a voice through supporter representation
• To promote Burnley Football Club within the community
The Clarets Trust now has a Committee consisting of Board members and co-opted members. Our former Member of Parliament for Burnley, Peter Pike is our renowned Chairman.
There are also a number of volunteers who help the Trust Committee to perform the day-to-day operation of the Trust such as setting up and maintaining this website and providing support at events. The more people that are willing to help then the better the workload can be divided and the more the Trust will be able to achieve. So if you want to get involved in any way, no matter how small then please get in touch by contacting us via firstname.lastname@example.org
