Aims & Objectives
The Albion Foundation is a registered charity that works in partnership with West Bromwich Albion Football Club. The aim is to use the medium of football and the kudos of West Bromwich Albion Football Club to make a difference in the local community.
We were formed in 1992 and became a registered charity in 2000 (Charity number 1081948)
Our motto is “Inspire to Achieve” and this guides our strategic objectives which are as follows:
- To create a “lifetime membership” for the community to be part of The Foundation and the Club
- To meet the sporting recreational, educational and health needs of the community
- To support the physical regeneration of the community
We aim to add value and develop and maintain strong strategic partnerships in the boroughs of Sandwell, Birmingham, Dudley and Worcestershire.
We have 3 key Focus Areas of Work:
- Reach Out
- Making a Difference
- Raising Aspirations
“We are delighted to provide ongoing support to The Albion Foundation.
