Founded in 1996, MFC Foundation works in some of the most disadvantaged areas of Teesside, engaging with those who are hard to reach through delivery of inspiring sport, education and health projects.

By using the power and influence of Middlesbrough Football Club, we will deliver bespoke programmes providing opportunities to raise aspirations and improve life chances of people across our local communities.

Our vision is to inspire confidence, inspire hope.
