A vision to build safer, stronger, more respectful communities through the development of young peoples' potential.
It's aim is to use football to bring communities together and engage with young people, getting to youngsters who had previously proven difficult to reach and guiding them towards a range of healthy and constructive activities.
The health and wellbeing programme aims to develop and enhance the experiences of a variety of different communities, engaging young and old in their health and wellbeing in a bid to make positive change. The health and wellbeing programme focuses on key areas such as reducing social isolation and loneliness, improving health, wellbeing and lifestyle, and bridging the generation gap through inter-generational schemes.
The Chelsea Champions Programme is a Premier League funded project based at 5 Secondary Schools across London and the South East. The programme aims to increase access and support to CFCF's core funded programmes, while developing initiatives and interventions to improve young people's emotional well-being and resilience.

The programme is set within HMPYOI Feltham Youth Offenders and works with 15-18 year old prisoners to help them identify a way to change their lives and not re-offend post release.
Delivering football, vocational qualifications and employability workshops we also work with the prisoners case-workers, youth offending officers and families to build up a picture of how the young person can be best helped when they are released from prison.
