Notts County FC Courses

Notts County FC Football in the Community is a multi-award-winning, independent, community sports charity.

We are proud to deliver a range of innovative programmes that make a positive difference to people in Nottingham, raising aspirations and supporting some of the most disadvantaged, marginalised and talented people across the city.  We use the power of football and the profile of the world’s oldest football league club, Notts County FC, to provide direction and support.

We are committed to providing high quality, accessible and life-changing, development opportunities that change people’s health, confidence and skills, increase positive behaviours and bring enjoyment to the people we work with.

As a charity, we raise all our own funding and are successful at designing innovative projects that target specific groups of local people.  We work with a wide range of groups across Nottingham on a daily basis of all ages, abilities and disabilities.

Our organisation has been developed into four key areas:

Health: we deliver a range of healthy lifestyle, disabilities, weight management and mental health projects to a range of ages, making a huge difference to participants’ long-term health. 

Education: we deliver education projects and currently educate young people, aged 14 to 24 on a full-time basis in our alternative provision and sports-based courses.

Social inclusion: we have a range of projects targeting marginalised groups including boys and men with mental health issues; people with dementia; teenagers at risk of crime or already involved in gangs and youth violence; children in care and offenders, among others.

Sports participation: we promote the benefits of sports and activity from a physical, mental and social point-of-view and work with people of all ages, abilities and disabilities to increase sports participation.
