We run a range of inclusive programmes across Derby and Derbyshire, enhancing community cohesion and providing sustainable opportunities for physical activity and education.

All of our activities are provided free of charge and look to improve employability skills along with physical and mental health.

Activities range from free football sessions to sports leadership and Football Association-accredited qualifications.

In partnership with the Police and Crime Commissioner for Derbyshire.

Football and Multi-Sports

Delivering football and multi-sports sessions for young people aged 11 - 16 years in communities across Derbyshire. These sessions provide a safe and friendly environment to meet people, exercise and improve general mental health and well-being.

Premier League Kicks

All activities are free and open to young people aged 11 to 19 years. No registration is required - just turn up and play. From being part of the Kicks programme, you can gain opportunities such as representing Derby County at tournaments, match tickets and free qualifications. If you are interested in getting involved with one of our inclusion programmes or want to get involved, whether as participant, coach or partner organisation, please contact Gavin Lewis on 07912 390941 or gavin.lewis@dcfc.co.uk.

Princes Trust

Around one in five young people in the UK are not in work, education or training. Youth unemployment costs the UK economy £10m a day in lost productivity, while youth crime costs £1bn every year. The Prince’s Trust addresses this by giving practical and financial support to the young people who need it most by helping to develop key skills, confidence and motivation, enabling young people to move into work, education or training.

Achieve FC

Derby County Community Trust was awarded £19,995 by People’s Postcode Trust, a grant-giving charity, funded entirely by players of People’s Postcode Lottery. The organisation will use the money to run Achieve FC. The project allows people who are experiencing homelessness in Derby to have the opportunity to gain their Level One certification in coaching from the FA and Level One from Sports Leaders UK. Derby County Community Trust staff will be on hand to run workshops and assist with the certification over the yearlong programme.
