Arsenal in the Community
Arsenal Football Club was born out of community and has always understood the power it has to bring people together and reach individuals in a way that nobody else can.
This idea of giving back continued right throughout the decades until Arsenal in the Community was formally established in the early 1980s, responding to the social unrest at the time and to encourage more young people to take part in recreational and competitive sport.
Over the years, the club has developed community programmes across a range of areas which deliver both sporting and social outcomes. Projects range from sport and education, to health and social inclusion which are often a springboard to training and employment.
In recent years, Arsenal in the Communitys outreach work has taken place on estates and parks – offering local young people the opportunity to play football and take advantage of the other education, social inclusion and employment pathways the Club offers. Through grants made by The Arsenal Foundation a number of pitches and spaces have been upgraded creating more places to play football and engage young people.
