Conwy Borough FC - In the Community

Football has the ability to engage people, improve community cohesion and raise the hopes and aspirations of the people of Conwy.

As a Club we are committed to ensuring that we respond to local needs whilst working strategically in line with regional and national agendas. We all recognise that sport can play a prominent role in addressing major issues such as obesity, anti-social behaviour, health, employment and attainment.

Through key partnerships and a robust multi-agency approach, we ensure that we can achieve our aims and objectives effectively and efficiently. Our partnerships work underpins the entire scheme delivery programme and enables us to work strategically within Conwy. These relationships enable us to engage with underrepresented and hard to reach groups.
