Chelsea Football Club Foundation

Chelsea Football Club Foundation
Do not underestimate the power of sport to tackle social change.
We are one of the world`s leading football social responsibility programmes. The Chelsea Football Club Foundation uses the power of sport to motivate, educate and inspire. We believe that the power of football can be harnessed to support communities and individuals both at home and abroad.
The Foundation works on a broad range of initiatives focusing on employment, education, social deprivation, crime reduction, youth offending and football development.

Stamford Bridge hosts our start-up incubator for job seekers with a business idea. We have helped over 2000 start-ups over the last 2 years through our passion and expertise. Our partnership with Ixion Holdings has enabled job seekers to access the governments New Enterprise Allowance to start their business. Alongside the incubator we have created the Edge of the Box Club, which sees job seekers, start-ups and businesses who care about start-ups collaborate. Our lead collaborator Santander has helped us grow the club and will be present in the village throughout the two days.

We created the Chelsea FC Foundation village to showcase some of these start-ups. Do not underestimate the power of sport!
