Derby County Courses

Using the power of Derby County Football Club to improve the lives of the people of Derbyshire through participation in sport.

Derby County Football Club has the ability to engage people, raising hopes and aspirations, improving the lives of the people of Derbyshire. As a Club we are committed to ensuring that we respond to local needs whilst working strategically in line with regional and national agendas. We all recognise that sport can play a prominent role in addressing major issues such as rising obesity levels, community cohesion, health inequalities, un-employment and educational attainment.

Through the diverse range of programmes delivered by Derby County Community Trust (DCCT), we aim to get people healthier and more active, raise attainment in schools, develop talent pathways and improve our local community.

Our partnership work strengthens the entire scheme delivery programme and enables us to work strategically within Derbyshire. We are very aware of the cultural diversity that exists in our local community and we are committed to embracing it and providing equitable access.
