Sky Blues in the Community are the official charity of Coventry City Football Club, aspiring to make positive impacts across all areas of our community through sport and education.
Our aims surround engaging all walks of life in physical activity by providing fun, safe and enjoyable environments for all ages and abilities. We pride ourselves in our ability to deliver accessible and high standard activities whilst facilitating and adapting to the needs of the community.
We have a passionate and dedicated team working endlessly to make a difference in our community and through the use of sport we hope to succeed in changing the lives of people who deserve it most.
Please feel free to browse our page to get an insight into the work we do in Coventry and Warwickshire. We welcome you to get involved and help us achieve our aims through volunteering, donating or simply joining one of our fast-growing programmes.
We know that professional football clubs provide an attractive platform for engaging people from all walks of life and this puts us in a unique position to address local priorities and national issues. We build on this platform by delivering innovative and quality activities across four main themes (Sport, Health, Inclusion and Education). We see it as our responsibility to utilise our position for the benefit of the local community across Coventry and Warwickshire and have a positive impact in our local area.
With that in mind, the vision for the organisation is ‘Change lives in our local community’
This vision is supported by our organisational mission statement, which is ‘Use the reach and appeal of Coventry City Football Club to make a difference to the lives of people across Coventry and Warwickshire’
To focus and influence the work of Sky Blues in the Community in achieving our mission and to address local priorities, our work is categorised under four core themes, each with their own headline goal:
- Sport – Engage people of all ages and abilities in sport and physical activity
- Health – Promote healthy behaviours, empowering people to take control of their own health and well-being
- Education – Inspire learning and personal development to raise aspirations, attainment and achievement
- Inclusion – Provide opportunities for people and communities that face common barriers
