We use football as a vehicle to help address social issues and do this through our four departments; Sports Participation, Health, Education and Community Cohesion.

We deliver engagement programmes to the people of South Essex with two main objectives; grow the fan base of Southend United and contribute to a ‘Better Southend’.

Our Mission

Is to have engaged with one million people through the brand of Southend United by 2026 and have a positive influence on peoples life.

Southend United always look forward to welcoming new & existing footballers onto our soccer schools. Our DBS checked FA licensed coaches are always on hand to inspire, encourage and share their passion for the beautiful game.
