We deliver football coaching, educational programmes, personal development and life changing experiences, providing young people with opportunities to change their lives for the better. 

Our Goal
To educate, motivate and inspire future generations to build better communities for all.

We aim to achieve our goal by delivering in five areas:

Football
We strive to provide football opportunities for school children and those with physical or mental disabilities. We also deliver girls only sessions and manage a Girls Centre of Excellence.

Community Cohesion
We aim to engage some of the most hard to reach young people in the community by delivering football coaching and a range of alternative activity sessions at times when they could otherwise become engaged in anti-social behaviour.

Health
Using football, and other sports, we deliver a range of programmes to improve the health and wellbeing of local communities.

Education
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 students.

Charities
The Foundation manages the Club’s charity partners, Francis House Children's Hospice, The Christie and UNICEF, and the distribution of signed merchandise for charitable purposes.
