Inclusive Sport

Our Key Aim: 

Inspire and engage young people aged 11-19 through the power of football and the BAFC brand.”

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 Kicks project, our aim is to help provide opportunities to individuals from 11-19 years to participate in free football and Multi-Sport sessions whilst using the brand of Burton Albion Football Club. All staff aim to engage, inspire and educate all individuals of mixed abilities and ages.
