We have been recognised at this year’s Better Society Awards, for our work in the local community.
Our Arsenal in the Community team offers support and a sense of belonging to over 5,000 individuals across 150 venues each week, through a range of education, social and sports programmes.
Arsenal in the Community’s work was celebrated at a prestigious awards ceremony in London earlier this month, where they accepted the award for ‘Commitment to the Local Community’ on behalf of the club.
Head of Arsenal in the Community Alan Sefton said: “Arsenal has always had a connection with our local community and for the past 32 years we have been working hard to make the most of that bond.
“Whether it’s in schools, local estates or at our base the Arsenal Hub - by bringing people together and supporting them through our projects we can make a real difference in the lives of local people.”
