About Us

Saints Foundation is the official charity of Southampton Football Club which exists to fulfill the potential and change the lives of children, young people, and vulnerable adults across Southampton and surrounding areas.

Working in partnership with Southampton Football Club, we aim to inspire and support people of all ages and abilities across Hampshire and the surrounding area to develop their potential into excellence. We deliver targeted programmes across five key themes: Employability & Learning, Health & Wellbeing, Education, Schools & Community and Saints4All (Inclusive Sport), in addition to our Football & Sports Development team who support school and grassroots football development.

Every year the Saints Foundation engages with thousands of young people and adults at risk through our programmes targeting some of the biggest issues in society. In so doing the charity invests over £2 million into local communities within Southampton and the surrounding area. These funds are generated through grants, sponsorship, coaching income, individuals taking on fundraising challenges and the never-ceasing support of a huge number of individuals and businesses within our local community.

Our Football & Sports Development team provides opportunities for hundreds of children each week to access high quality sports coaching and provide them the pathway to reach their potential.
