About the Cyrille Regis Legacy Trust

The Trust was created to honour Cyrille’s legacy and will continue to work on the projects he held close to his heart.

Cyrille was privileged to give back to his community, using his position to support and raise awareness of a number of causes. He cherished his role as Ambassador and Trustee for Christians in Sport, Wateraid and The Jason Roberts Foundation, his nephew’s charity.

Prior to his passing, Cyrille had begun to share thoughts of retirement and an even greater commitment to charity work. His vision and values form the basis of the Trust as we continue his influential role in the football world, local community and beyond.

Those who knew him will see Cyrille’s DNA in all our projects, underpinned by the ‘Cyrille Standard’.

Our work will reflect the way Cyrille lived his life - in service to others. It will establish a fitting and permanent tribute to him.

We strive to:

- Develop and support football-based projects which lie at the heart of their communities

- Create and support mentoring initiatives which help people from disadvantaged backgrounds to improve their social and economic circumstances

- Break down barriers in our communities
