Aberdeen FC Community Trust
Aberdeen FC Community Trust (AFCCT), Partner Charity to Aberdeen Football Club, was established in March 2014 with the vision “to provide support and opportunity to change lives for the better”.
AFCCT maintain a close and mutually supportive relationship with Aberdeen Football Club, while operating under the direction of its own Board of Trustees, contributing towards the Club’s own objective of being at the “heart of the local community”.
Our work supports people across all age groups and backgrounds, expanding across two key areas ‘Education and Positive Destinations’ and ‘Football, Health and Wellbeing’.
Partnership is a key aspect of our work, working with many local and national organisations, strategically aligning activities with both the local authority and the country’s key strategic priorities.
Using the power of football and goodwill felt towards Aberdeen Football Club, AFCCT empower communities and individuals locally, nationally, and potentially internationally, developing the next generation of young people.
We are proud that our outstanding work has been rewarded with numerous awards. In 2019 Aberdeen FC Community Trust won Best Professional Club as recognised by UEFA through their Grassroots Awards.
AFCCT is a registered Scottish Charitable Incorporated Organisation (SCIO), Scottish Charity No. SC044720. As an independent charity the Trust values the power of partnership and support from organisations and individuals to help us continue to change lives for the better.
