Meet the Team Get in Touch

Reds in the Community is a registered charity delivering community and charitable activities on behalf of Barnsley Football Club. We use the power of football and Barnsley Football Club to engage and improve the lives of local people. Professional football clubs are at the hearts of their communities, not just geographically but more importantly emotionally. They have a unique connection and draw that enables them to reach further and wider than others. This provides a great opportunity and responsibility to make a difference.

Our Mission:

Using the power of football and Barnsley Football Club we aim to engage and improve the lives of local people through a range of activities and projects within four key themes – Education, Health, Social Inclusion and Sports Participation
