About Our Founder
SIR BOBBY CHARLTON
Sir Bobby Charlton’s sporting exploits and domestic, European and international trophy successes are legendary throughout the footballing world. What is less well known is the work he has done throughout his career for charity, and how he set up his own not-for-profit organisation, The Sir Bobby Charlton Foundation, to help people affected by conflict.
The Sir Bobby Charlton Foundation’s support for conflict affected communities takes many forms but all have the same goals of alleviating suffering, ending discrimination and helping beneficiaries to fulfil their potential. We do this in the following ways
Humanitarian & Development Assistance
Our work supports both the immediate humanitarian needs of those caught up in current conflicts and the longer-term development challenges of people living with the legacy of past wars.
Education & Training
Through our conflict recovery centres and partnerships, The Sir Bobby Charlton Foundation offers vocational and small business training for people in conflict-affected communities who have a disability and for those living in poverty.
Whether you are a runner, cyclist, baker or musician there are lots of ways for you to get involved and support the work of Sir Bobby Charlton and The Sir Bobby Charlton Foundation. There are several organised sporting events throughout the year that you might want to take part in. These include:
If your talents lie away from sport, then why not get together with friends and family to organise your own event? This might be a local family fun day, a comedy night, a concert or bake-off. Let your imagination run wild or contact The Sir Bobby Charlton Foundation team to find out what other people are doing to raise money for conflict affected communities.
The Sir Bobby Charlton Foundation is committed to working in partnership at a local, national, and international level.
By donating to The Sir Bobby Charlton Foundation today you will enable us to provide the care and support needed to lift people out of poverty, give people with a disability back their mobility and dignity and help children who have been traumatised by conflict to re-engage with their friends, family and school. You can also contribute to our groundbreaking research and innovations which are designed to make people affected by conflict safer, healthier and more resilient.Donate Today
