Foundation Aims and Objectives

The Albion Foundation is uniquely recognised for the quality delivery of sport and education

The Albion Foundation works in partnership with West Bromwich Albion Football Club, using the medium of football and the judos of the football club to provide sporting and educational opportunities to the most disadvantaged members of our local community.

We employ 46 full-time and 81 part-time staff, supplemented by more than 130 volunteers whose aim is to “Inspire to Achieve” on a daily basis.

We have established a reputation for delivering high quality programmes and are proud of the strong partnerships built over a sustained period of time.

Our strategic principles are as follows:

  • To make a difference and raise aspirations in our local community

  • To grow our own staff and create an inspiring working environment

We have a clear vision for the future of the Foundation where we strive for the following:
