AFC Wimbledon Foundation was formed in 2013 after a recognition that the ground-breaking creation, establishment
and success of AFC Wimbledon Football Club was built on the energy and effort of its supporters. The football club
wanted to pay back this support by providing a series of targeted community-based activities for local people and
formed the Foundation to deliver this work. The Foundation has completed some fantastic project work in the early
years of its existence across SW London and is positioning itself at the centre of the exciting new stadium development
at Plough Lane.
The Foundation has developed a series of key girls only and women’s sessions within its work programmes over the
last five years and is now looking to expand and develop new funded streams of work, creating additional playing and
coaching opportunities, particularly for marginalised communities and those who don’t traditionally access organised
team sports. The Foundation has strong links with AFC Wimbledon Womens’ First Team and AFCW Girls teams and
part of the role will be to explore further links and partnership work across the Wimbledon family.
