The ‘Police Clubs’ were formed initially in 1978 by three Metropolitan and one Essex police officer purely to administer British Police Boxing.
After a number of successful years, in 1997 the organisation evolved into a collective of Police Community Boxing Clubs whereby, ‘The Police Clubs’ became the ‘Police Community Clubs of Great Britain’. From this point on, the emphasis was directed to engagement with hard to reach communities through sport.
Over the past twenty years, the Police Community Clubs of Great Britain [PCCGB] has grown out of all recognition since those formative times. Visitors to this web site will see the huge number of programmes carried out which impact so much on all those youngsters we seek to help and engage with.
The National Police Community Trust which deals with all our charitable activities was formed by the same four police officers that formed the non-charitable PCCGB.
Registered number 1079612
The aims of the Trust are set out as follows on the Charity Commission web site:
TO PROVIDE OPPORTUNITIES FOR YOUTHS AT RISK OF BECOMING INVOLVED IN CRIME OR ANTI SOCIAL BEHAVIOUR. THROUGH A RANGE OF PROJECTS INCLUDING SPORT, EDUCATION.
THE CHARITY HELPS THOUSANDS OF YOUNG PEOPLE THROUGHOUT THE YEAR TO MAKE POSITIVE DECISIONS ABOUT THEIR FUTURE.
