Our trustees


Our Board of Trustees is ultimately responsible for the governance and strategic direction of the Football Foundation and for directing how we are managed and run. They play a big part in helping ensure the investment provided by the Foundation’s Funding Partners is spent appropriately in realising the Foundation’s aims and objectives.

The Football Foundation in particular is a charity I feel very passionately about and as an ambassador have seen the real difference the work is doing to improve communities across the country.
