Our Organisation

Newcastle United Foundation is an independent registered charity supported by Newcastle United Football Club working across Newcastle, Gateshead, North Tyneside, and Northumberland.

Our organisation is a team of more than 100 permanent and fixed term staff, sessional coaches and volunteers working to provide meaningful opportunities to change and improve the lives of people across the North East.

We use our region’s passion for football to make a difference and help people achieve their goals, on the pitch, in the classroom, in life, inspired by the brand of Newcastle United.

As an independent registered charity, Newcastle United Foundation is governed by an independent Board of Trustees.
