Chelsea FC Foundation
Formed in 2010, the Chelsea Foundation brings together the Football in the Community and the Education department along with the club’s other charitable and community activities, including environment and anti-discrimination projects.
The foundation is the charitable arm of Chelsea FC, an English professional football club based in Fulham, London, that competes in the Premier League. Founded in 1905, the club’s home ground since then has been Stamford Bridge.
As one of the world’s leading football social responsibility programmes the Chelsea Foundation uses the power of sport to motivate, educate and inspire. Chelsea FC Foundation believes that the power of football can be harnessed to support communities and individuals both at home and abroad.
A key success of the foundation has been the strong link-ups with funding partners, local authorities, schools and agencies. In all programmes, the foundation works in consultation with the partners themselves, constructing innovative and tailor-made programmes to respond to local needs.
On top of their outstanding football development programmes, the Chelsea Foundation works on a broad range of initiatives focusing on employment, education, social deprivation, crime reduction, youth offending and much more.
