Foundation

The Chelsea Foundation was launched in July 2010 as a charitable trust to oversee the club’s wide-ranging corporate social responsibility work, although the story of the Foundation stems back much further.

 

Soon after his arrival at Chelsea in 2003, Roman Abramovich made it clear that not only did he want the Blues to be a successful football team, but also a force for good away from the football field. Our Here to Play, Here to Stay programme, which ensures we work year-round with the communities where the team visits on tour, is the very essence of that.

The Foundation believes the power of football can bring about positive changes in people's lives and their communities, address inequalities in society and boost health and fitness.

 

As well as offering outstanding football development programmes, the Chelsea Foundation works on a broad range of initiatives focusing on employment, education, anti-discrimination, social inclusion, crime reduction and tackling youth offending.

The key to the Foundation’s work is harnessing the popularity of sport, football and Chelsea in particular, which is helped greatly by the invaluable contribution of Blues players in recent years. Also, many Foundation projects are carried out in conjunction with the club’s global charity partner Right To Play, as well as club partners adidas and Samsung.

 

The majority of the Foundation’s UK-based work takes place in London and the south-east of England. This is where our Blue Pitches were first introduced to offer first-class facilities on which youngsters can play, while receiving expert coaching and guidance from Foundation coaches. As with many Foundation projects, these have developed overseas, with nine countries operating Blue Pitches as of August 2013, and the target being a total of 15 by 2016. Local coaches are trained in the Chelsea Foundation methods with UK-based Foundation coaches making regular visits.
