KEY AIM –
• Our health team aim to provide high quality opportunities to create a healthier community.
The Heath and Inclusion department’s aim is to provide programmes that can have a positive impact on the health agenda within the Burton and surrounding areas. We want to use BAFC, our staff and our stadium as a vehicle to help create a healthier local community.
Through our projects our aims are to help provide opportunities to individuals of all ages that either have issues with their health or want to improve their health. All staff aim to engage, inspire and educate all individuals of mixed abilities and ages.
