Sport is at the heart of AFC Wimbledon Foundation's work and goes beyond just football. Through our multi-sports programmes, we are encouraging more people to play sport and to be active on a regular basis. Working closely with the English Football League Trust, we are committed to increasing both the number and quality of sports coaches working in schools, as well as ensuring that these coaches have the skills to engage with all sections of our community.
We use the power of sport to improve the health of the local Merton community and reduce any health inequalities that exist. We work across all age groups and sections of the community, but a particular focus is put on reducing obesity by promoting healthy eating and physical activity.
The AFC Wimbledon Foundation works with people, young and old, to develop skills for life. We work with disadvantaged young people through the newly launched Traineeship scheme, supporting them to achieve positive outcomes. We utilise the power of sport to work with those for whom traditional educational routes haven't worked to help them learn new skills in innovative ways.
The AFC Wimbledon Foundation uses the power of sport to help tackle all forms of disadvantage and to promote equality. We look to exist at the heart of the Merton community and bring people together from all walks of life.
