2016/17 in numbers

In March 2014, Aberdeen FC Community Trust was established as the official partner charity of AFC, “To provide support and opportunity to change lives for the better.”

As an important participant in Scotland’s ‘national sport’ Aberdeen Football Club recognises its high profile and influential position nationally and especially within Aberdeen and the North East of Scotland.

AFCCT work in partnership with North East local authorities, Life Changes Trust, NHS Grampian, Sport Aberdeen, Police Scotland and Aberdeen Sports Village and more.

AFCCT maintains a close and mutually supportive relationship with Aberdeen Football Club and operates under the direction of its own Board of Trustees. By operating as a registered charity and separating its business activities entirely from the football club, AFCCT is able to access funding and CSR sponsorship opportunities previously unavailable to AFC. This additional funding resource is targeted to benefit those in need within Aberdeen and Aberdeenshire communities.

Community initiatives are developed in conjunction with relevant stakeholders, with every effort being made to align relevant strategies and resources. AFCCT creates a demand-led range of community initiatives in a spirit of equal partnership, with all activities being as inclusive as possible.

Aberdeen FC Community Trust works hard to harness the existing support and goodwill felt towards Aberdeen Football Club, and to utilise that positivity to empower communities and individuals locally, nationally and potentially internationally.

AFCCT is a registered Scottish Charitable Incorporated Organisation (SCIO), Scottish Charity No. SC044720.
