Charlton crowned EFL Community Club of the Season


Charlton Athletic have been named as the Community Club of the Season at the 2024 EFL Awards ceremony in London.

The EFL Community Club of the Season Award celebrates an outstanding club, based on its commitment to the community and the impact it has on people’s lives. 

In 2023, Charlton Athletic’s Community Trust (CACT) engaged with 25,000 participants, with the work having a reported value to society of £49.6million. Charlton Athletic continues to remain committed to EDI excellence, with training provided to the club’s Board and a women’s network established last year.

More than 7,400 cost-of-living support referrals were received from Charlton’s Primary Care partners, which lead to CACT making 11,222 outward referrals to support people in need of help.  

Speaking after collecting the award, CACT CEO Jason Morgan said: “We were delighted at the House of Commons to win the divisional Community Club of the Year, but this is special tonight, very special.

“It is a credit to Terry Peart and everyone at the Charlton Athletic Community Trust for all the work they do, and we are delighted tonight.”
