Bath City FC Foundation is an independent charity associated with Bath City FC at Twerton Park in Bath, established in 2011 and re-branded in 2018. It is run by a dynamic Board of Trustees, volunteers and four salaried, part time staff members.
The Foundation has developed and is at an exciting stage of its development with a growing reputation, increased capacity for delivery and potential partnerships with Bath-based organisations and businesses. We are proud to be part of the Bath City FC family, which includes the Club, the Supporters Society and Bath City Youth.
35% of children in Twerton live in poverty vs 12% in Newbridge and there is a 9 year life expectancy difference from Lansdown to Twerton. Twerton has the highest levels of inactivity, obesity and unemployment in BANES.
The Foundation was established to support this level of disadvantage with health and wellbeing programmes, focussing on sport for change.
Our programmes are delivered in primary, secondary schools and disability groups within BANES where there is evidence of need and we collaborate with other organisations such as Bath MIND, Avon & Somerset Police, Bath Rugby Foundation and University of Bath.
Our programmes cover a number of themes to address deprivation and disadvantage in BANES. For example, we are committed to expanding our holiday hunger project, which started in 2018, and is supported by food providers FareShareSW.
We deliver the Premier League Primary Stars programme, a programme to raise maths and literacy in schools, which is funded through the National League Trust.
Our fundraising strategy is ambitious and we are currently funded by local donors and Foundations and have secured a pilot project for older people in our Community funded by the National Lottery Community Fund.
We currently have a total of 875 beneficiaries.
Salary: £40,000 pa pro rata
Time commitment: 0.5 based at home or Twerton Park
There will be occasional evening events and one or two themed match days at the Club to attend.
Diversity of the Board:
In 2016, UK Sport and Sport England jointly published A Code for Sports Governance, the requirements of which are mandatory for organisations in receipt of public funding for sport.
We, on the Board, take diversity seriously and are keen to make sure that Bath City FC Foundation not only has a diverse Board and leadership, but reflects the community in which we work.
