Manchester United Foundation


Manchester United Foundation works across Greater Manchester to deliver football coaching, skills training, personal development and life changing experiences, providing young people with opportunities to change their lives for the better.

The Foundation’s goal is to use the passion for Manchester United to educate, motivate and inspire future generations to build better communities for all.


Hub of the Community

The Foundation’s objectives are to take Manchester United to the heart of the community and develop young people to achieve their full potential.  No project has gone further to achieve this than the Hub of the Community.

The project bases full time Community Development Officers in targeted areas in order for them to build lasting relationships with the local community.

After an initial assessment of provision in the area, programming is tailored to meet the needs of that particular community.  Coaches are then based permanently at a secondary school to work with pupils from the school, children from feeder primary schools, teachers, parents, local community groups and partnership organisations.
