Manchester United Foundation
Who we are
Manchester United Foundation uses football to engage and inspire young people to build a better life for themselves and unite the communities in which they live.
Dedicated staff deliver football coaching, educational programmes and personal development, providing young people with opportunities to change their lives for the better.
Our objectives are to take Manchester United to the heart of the community and develop young people to achieve their potential. No project has gone further to achieving this than our Partner Schools programme. The project bases full time Community Development Officers in targeted areas to help build relationships with the local community.
We offer a range of educational projects for young people in the local area. From educating youngsters about the inner workings of a football club to improving confidence, life skills and employability, our programmes are innovative and inspiring - everything you would expect from Manchester United.
