We are Burnley FC in the Community; the award-winning, official charity of Burnley Football Club.
We believe in the immense power of our football club to transform people’s lives for the better. We work hard every day to deliver on our mission to inspire, support and deliver change to communities across Burnley, Pendle, Rossendale, Hyndburn, the Ribble Valley and Calderdale.
Our work is channelled into five key areas; sports, education, health, social inclusion and community facilities. Our highly-skilled, dynamic and passionate team now deliver over 30 community projects that touch the lives of a huge spectrum of people in and around Burnley; from children and young people, right through to senior citizens.
Though we are embedded within the ethos of Burnley FC, we are financially independent of the football club. We rely on fundraising activities, donations, sponsorships and grants to do the work we do and every penny we raise goes to developing new opportunities for those who need it most.
We believe Burnley is a special place, home to extraordinary people. This website will showcase to you the scope of our work – but it’s also a place you can actively get involved in the work of our charity.
Day by day, the outreach of our work is growing and truly exciting things are happening at Burnley FC in the Community. Come and be part of our story.
