Rushcliffe Borough Council

The initial funding for Positive Futures was from the Football Foundation in conjunction with Rushcliffe Borough Council. This funding expired in 2012 and the Borough Council then took the decision to fund the project alongside Nottinghamshire County Cricket Club.

In 2017 Rushcliffe Borough Council funded the full project to see the delivery extend to cover five localities. This funding ran for four years, and was renewed in 2020 to secure the initiative's future until at least December 2024. 

The Trent Bridge Community Trust also receives donations and grants from a variety of Trusts, individuals and events. This allows additional projects to be delivered or enhances some of the current projects.
