About Us

Bury FC Community Trust is a stand-alone independent organization, but acknowledged as the official charity representing Bury Football Club within the community. This is acknowledged by both The English Football League Trust (EFLT) and The Premier League Charitable Fund (PLCF)

The Charity is an independent registered charity which delivers a number of positive and supporting activities within Bury and the surrounding community. We use football and sport to provide a range of opportunities to improve health and fitness, develop educational opportunities and to engage hard to reach and excluded communities.

Since becoming a registered charity in 2007, we now support over 150,000 engagements each year across many different programs which support healthy lifestyles, reduce social isolation, improve academic achievement and employability, and reduce anti-social behavior. In 2012 we were voted The Football League North West Community Club of the year.

We could not do the work we do without our dedicated staff, trustees and multiple community partners.

What We Do

We are dedicated to our vision which is to ‘Increase Physical Activity For All’. To do this we work with our local community to make sure all we deliver is creating more opportunities for more people to become involved in sport and physical activity.

School Sports

We are committed to providing high-quality P.E provision to local primary schools in partnership with The Premier League. Designed by sports specialists all Bury FC P.E/Maths/English/PHSE sessions promise to be delivered by well trained, educated staff. Each session works towards the guidelines set by the new national school's curriculum and the Premier League.

Specialist Projects

This department sits at the heart of our thinking. Within this department, we deliver health and inclusion projects that are designed to help and improve the local community through sport and development of life skills. We deliver projects that meet the needs of the community specifically targeting those from minority backgrounds or those who are at a disadvantage.

Grassroots

Our ethos is that football is for all, and our social objective is to engage young people no matter what gender, race or ability they represent. Through our official Grassroots club Bury FC Boys and Girls, we can achieve this. The club is open to all and works to enhance a young persons ability to socialize positively, exercise effectively and develop transferable skills such as communication, teamwork, and sportsmanship.
