Aberdeen FC Community Trust

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. Community activities have been historically delivered by a department based within the club.

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

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

Since its introduction AFCCT has significantly increased football participation programmes in the area. AFCCT cater for girls and boys (aged 3 upwards), people living with disability, and individuals from ethnic and religious minorities. AFCCT utilise their Scottish FA Football Development Officers to enhance local grassroots football, and now facilitate all Primary School Football League activity in Aberdeen, and in areas of Aberdeenshire.

A significant focus of the work undertaken by AFCCT has been to develop and increase wider community engagement well beyond ‘just’ football. This work is done in close partnership with other like-minded groups and organisations. Involving participants of all ages, some aged 100+, AFCCT has programmes addressing dementia, inactivity, obesity, social exclusion, social deprivation, and more.
