Greenock Morton Community Trust (GMCT) is a registered charity (Charity No. SC040819), which uses the power of football, and the Greenock Morton Football Club (GMFC) brand, to deliver a number of projects across the Inverclyde area.
The organisation has been operational since March 2013 after a period of planning and preparation from September 2012.
We help to create a healthier and safer region working closely with key partners in the public and private sectors, our inclusive programmes engage people of all ages and abilities. These range from physical literacy classes in nursery schools, through to non-elite coaching sessions for 2-16 year olds, employability training for people of all ages, promoting healthy lifestyles for adults, physical and mental well-being sessions for all.
We have more than 5000 people engaged in these programmes on an annual basis, and more besides, we can safely say that we are living up to our mission statement below
