Chorley FC Community Foundation is the Corporate Foundation of Chorley Football Club, and is a registered Charity (number 1183529)

Why we created a Community foundation?

Chorley FC sits at the heart of the Chorley Community with around 1500 local residents attended on matchdays. The people of Chorley are passionate about their local team and we wanted to create new ways for them to get involved, regardless of age, gender or ability. 

Whether it’s through local schools, walking football or attending one of our social groups for a chat, it’s important to us that everyone in the Chorley area feels welcome. 

Chorley’s FC Community Foundation’s role is to create and promote health and well-being projects which are accessible and affordable for the people of Chorley and it’s surrounding areas. 

We believe that sport is for all, and through the Foundation we can deliver exciting and innovative projects not available anywhere else in the borough.  

Our values

In May 2019 Chorley FC was granted charitable status. As part of our application we stated our objectives as an organisation, and these objectives are the starting point for every activity we undertake.
