Aims and Objectives

Our mission is simple: to use the power of football to invest in the communities we serve and to improve the education, health, wellbeing and happiness of people, no matter who they are.

History and Background

Established in 2001 by former Sunderland AFC chairman Sir Bob Murray CBE, we are the official charity of Sunderland AFC.

Activities and Projects

We use our position as an unparalleled route into traditionally 'hard to reach' communities, working across four programme areas - sport and play, world of work, education and health and wellbeing.
