The Manchester United Foundation works in some of the most disadvantaged areas across Greater Manchester and uses the passion for Manchester United to educate, motivate and inspire young people.
Manchester United recognises the important role that we can play in engaging with young people.
We deliver football coaching, skills training, personal development and life changing experiences, providing young people with opportunities to change their lives for the better.
To educate, motivate and inspire future generations to build better communities for all.
We aim to achieve our goal by delivering in five areas:
We strive to provide football opportunities for school children and those with physical or mental disabilities.
We deliver a programme of football and alternative activities that act as a mechanism for community cohesion in some of the UK’s most deprived areas.
Using football, and other sports, we aim to develop a range of programmes that improve the health and wellbeing of local communities.
We develop partnerships with schools to create community hubs and also deliver a range of educational programmes to primary and secondary schools, using Manchester United as a hook to engage youngsters.
The Foundation manages the Club’s charity partners, Francis House, The Christie and UNICEF, and the distribution of signed merchandise for charitable purposes.
