What people say about us...
Nick Perchard, Premier League Head of Community; "The Premier League is proud to fund clubs throughout the EFL to deliver impactful community activity. Oldham Athletic Community Trust are a great example of how a community organisation can combine interest in the club and staff that are positive role models, to inspire people of all ages to improve their wellbeing, education and skills."
Councillor Sean Fielding, Oldham Council Leader; "OACT was the perfect organisation to commission to do positive engagement activity with young people in Failsworth. Put simply, they know what they are doing. The work with schools and sports development that OACT undertook on behalf of the Council both improved the confidence of young people and reduced antisocial behaviour in Failsworth by offering something constructive for people to take part in."
Jonathan Bell, Werneth Primary School Principal;We know that so many families have been affected by the pandemic. Parents and carers have found themselves unemployed or with reduced incomes through no fault of their own. It’s heartbreaking to see the impact of this on families across the borough, so we are incredibly grateful to Martin and OACT for supporting the Werneth Primary School Foodbank and helping us to provide a community hub at a time of need.
