Gloucestershire Cricket Trust help young people of any background, ethnicity or ability to encourage sport and a healthy life style. We do this by helping local clubs, schools and groups to participate in cricket. We have a particular interest in those, who by reason of their youth, social or economic circumstances, need support and we also provide similar help for the disabled.

The Gloucestershire Cricket Trust (GCT) (charity number 1003740) includes not just Gloucestershire but South Gloucestershire & Bristol as well.

We have run many different projects since our founding in 1991. Recently, these have included disability cricket competitions, coach training and a healthy eating programme. For more information on our work, visit the projects page.

To run its activities, achieve its aims and meet its projects’ needs the Trust requires £95,000 each year. No funding is received from the England and Wales Cricket Board and the Trust relies solely on donations.
