  • Mission statement

    As the charitable arm of Brighton & Hove Albion Football Club we use the power of sport and the reach of the football club to deliver programmes in the areas of sports participation, health and wellbeing, education, disability and social inclusion. Our commitment is that Albion in the Community makes a positive difference to people’s lives. Celebrating diversity, the understanding of the individual, and encouraging personal development are all part of the respect that AITC has for its local communities, and the people within them. By using professional staff to provide premium quality training, we are able to offer services that enrich and transform communities. And we work with many local agencies, forging long and fruitful partnerships, benefiting businesses and improving the lives of local people.

    Perhaps one of our beneficiaries can bring to life our impact best. Spencer Radley-Martin, winner of the Football League Disabled Player of the Year in 2013 said, "Without Albion in the Community, I don't think I would be the person I am today. They have given me the chance to do things I never thought I'd be able to do. "
