Dover Athletic Community Trust is a charity affiliated to Dover Athletic Football Club (reg. charity no. 1179651). We were established in August 2018 to enable the football club's objective to become an integral part of its local community and to make a positive difference within the Dover District. The trust builds on the platform of club community initiatives and is now embarking on a strategy to offer wellbeing initiatives in and around Dover. This naturally starts with sport related programmes and will soon stretch beyond sport and into new realms of physical and mental health. The trust also aligns itself to its local stakeholders and will work closely with Dover District Council to ensure it can assist in delivering the councils key health and wellbeing objectives also.

Dover Athletic Community Trust’s leg of the National League U11 cup went ahead despite the awful weather conditions this week thanks to a generous offer from the new Dover Leisure Centre to host the event. The constant rain had made a mess of the community pitches at Crabble, but the Leisure Centre stepped in to save the day – and the tournament for over 100 children from 9 different schools from across the district. The schools represented were Sandwich Juniors, Temple Ewell, White Cliffs, Vale View, Aycliffe, River, Whitfield, Lydden and Cartwright and Kelsey.
