PITC deliver inspiring sports, physical activity, education, health and well-being programmes primarily across Portsmouth and surrounding areas for all members of the community regardless of ethnicity, age, gender, physical ability, background or economic status. They are proud to be partnered with Portsmouth Football Club and have delivered a number of football programmes for decades. In the last ten years, however, their work in the community has grown and developed into a variety of areas.

What are the trustee commitments?

PITC are governed by our board of trustees who are responsible for the strategy of the organisation and ultimately legally and financially responsible for the governance of the organisation:

  • Trustees meet a minimum of six times per year
  • Most trustees also attend meetings of subcommittees which may be more

Day-to-day running of the organisation is delegated to the Chief Executive, Clare Martin, who is accountable to the board of trustees. The CEO manages a group of senior managers who are each responsible for their own respective areas of the charity’s activities.
