Impact Report 2020

Impact Report 2020

We are delighted to release our 2020 Impact Report. 

The 2019/20 season turned out to be a season like no other. The coronavirus pandemic had an unprecedented effect, and along with every other football club in the country, our version of ‘normal’, was turned upside down in March. 

This year’s Impact Report is a report of two halves. The first half features the work we carried out before March, detailing our broad range of impactful community programmes and thriving facilities including the Leisure Box, Whitehough Outdoor Centre and Burnley Community Kitchen. 

Meanwhile, in the latter half, we demonstrate how we handled the challenges of COVID-19,  how we adapted our working practices, formed partnerships with other organisations to care for those in need and how all of this impacted people in our community. 

The report also details our collaboration with the football club, the support of the players, our work around Equality & Diversity and above all our One Club for All ethos. 

As a charity, we have been on a profound journey this season, but as always our committed team adapted and reacted to the changing circumstances to continue to make a positive impact on the town. 

We encourage you to take a look at the report to gain an insight into this historical season, but while doing so join us in feeling an enormous sense of pride in the knowledge that no matter the challenges, Burnley FC in the Community is there to support the local community and help those who need us most.
