The Peterborough United Foundation was formed in 2009 to to directly benefit local children and adults in the Greater Peterborough area through a variety of projects.
The Foundation aims to provide services which will impact on primary schools, secondary schools, adults and further education facilities throughout the city, delivered through a series of educational and sporting programmes which we believe will have a huge impact on the lives of the people of Peterborough.
As one of the recognisable organisations in the city, we are able to use the brand of the football club to engage and reach groups from all cultures and walks of life. Peterborough is a city with a hugely diverse population which shares a common love of football. We are able to use football and the club brand to break down social and cultural barriers. The Foundation will deliver sessions aimed at giving everyone a productive and enjoyable activity.
We are also supporting the Football League charity initiatives Help for Hero’s, Help for Hospices, Marie Curie Cancer Care and Prostate Cancer UK.
