About Us

Have you heard about the Foundation? Do you know who we are? Do you know what we do? If the answer is no, read on...

The Stockport County Community Foundation is an important element of the Football Club, it takes Stockport County off the pitch and into the local community to engage children and adults in structured, safe, fun and developmental activities, giving Stockport County FC a huge profile outside of Edgeley Park.

We work with various partners - both football and non-football - to deliver high quality activities for a wide range of participants.
