Community Sports Foundation

The Community Sports Foundation is Norwich City FC's official charity

We use the power of sport to support and inspire our community. Our charitable objectives are driving inclusion for people with disabilities, boosting mental health and wellbeing, and supporting disadvantaged people to raise their aspirations.
