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 (legally, Burnley Supporters Trust Limited) is the key representative body consisting of representatives from the local and national Burnley FC Fanbase.  The Trust regularly liaise with staff representatives at Burnley FC.

The Trust chose to retain its shares following the ALK Capital takeover and Calder Vale Holdings Limited offer to sell.  This means we remain in a strong position to influence decisions at the highest level in 2022 and beyond.

The Clarets Trust now has a Committee consisting of Board members and co-opted members.
