Organisation aims and objectives

Falkirk Football Community Foundation are a recognised registered charity who seek to use the power of football to meet the needs of people within our communities. We deliver a range of social, educational and sporting programmes to help address a range of issues by removing barriers that prevent or restrict participation and help to improve health and increase motivation. We are closely aligned to Falkirk Football Club, whilst operating as a separate organisation. We deliver football activity to over 700 children and young people a week though our community club. We work with a variety of partners to improve the employability prospects of long term unemployed young people and adults, including the delivery of SQA qualifications. We support the community though a variety of health and wellbeing projects delivered to everyone from the very young, through families, to the over 65s.
