In 1986, Manchester City formalised a century of commitment to social responsibility with the foundation of its charity, City in the Community (CITC).

Now more than 30 years old, City in the Community supports people across Greater Manchester by empowering healthier lives through football. Our youth-led programmes place physical and mental wellbeing at their core, whilst also creating healthy futures and healthy communities.

Supporting 20,000 people each season, City in the Community’s award-winning programmes aim to:

  • Nurture health people by putting physical and mental wellbeing at the centre of its sessions.
  • Build healthy futures through education and employability pathways.
  • Connect people by creating healthy communities in safe, inclusive environments.
