What we do

Newcastle United Foundation provides meaningful opportunities to improve the lives of thousands of children, teenagers, adults, families, and older generations. Through our education, sport, personal development, and wellbeing programmes, we help everyone to be more active, learn new skills and feel happier and healthier.

NU Futures

Transforming young people’s journeys from education to careers.

NU Futures will be delivered at NUCASTLE powered by Newcastle Building Society, alongside an extensive community outreach programme targeting thousands of schoolchildren and young people across the North of Tyne. The programme will also see additional support for young adults furthest from the jobs market through mentoring, personal development, digital STEM learning and regular interactions with local employers.


Community is at the heart of everything we do.

From free physical activity, respite support for chronically ill children and teenagers, and personal development courses to support impact projects, early intervention youth violence work and more. Our community programmes offer opportunities for children and young adults of all backgrounds to navigate through everyday life.
