Aberdeen FC, alongside partner charity Aberdeen FC Community Trust, was last week named ‘Best Professional Football Club’ in the prestigious 2019 UEFA Grassroots Awards.

In a collaborative approach working with the Scottish FA, the club has developed a model of best practice nationally with shared goals and resources, in a bid to develop a collective vision of increasing football participation in the region.

This inaugural Impact Report evaluates the community work of Aberdeen FC Community Trust (AFCCT) from 1st July 2018 to 30th June 2019 and demonstrates what the charity is contributing across various national agendas and what these outcomes look like at a local level.
