We are recruiting to our Board of Trustees

The Cyrille Regis Legacy Trust (CRLT) was established in 2019 following the death of the late Cyrille Regis MBE to continue his passion and commitment to community work, particularly among young people. Cyrille held charity work in high regard and was a true example of what it meant to ‘give back’.  

This charity aims to: 

  • Develop and support football-based projects.
  • Create and support mentoring initiatives which help people from disadvantaged backgrounds to improve their social and economic circumstances.
  • Breakdown barriers in our communities.

CRLT empowers young people to take control of and live the best lives they can. Our signature mentoring programme, launched in 2019 is Strike a Change - a unique collaboration led by the Cyrille Regis Legacy Trust and between all six West Midland Football Club Foundations.
