The Sheffield Wednesday Community Programme is the Football Club’s charitable arm and is established to support the development of cohesive communities around South Yorkshire and to seek to increase engagement, training provision and support amongst its residents working across four key themes; participation, social inclusion, health and well-being and education.
The club’s Community Programme is a ground-breaking and innovative programme which is delivered through regular presence in schools, working with disadvantaged or socially excluded groups in society, through crime reduction and community-based football coaching sessions.
The Community Programme works with the Premier League and Sport England to boost sports participation amongst 14-25 year olds. The project also works with the England Basketball. Amateur boxing association and Table Tennis England organisation.
The Community Programme also works with local schools to provide physical education and health advice as well as providing health and fitness programmes for people wanting to get fit and gain a healthy lifestyle.
