Welcome To The Racecourse Community Foundation

Our website enables us to share with you updates on the work that we deliver, on behalf of our Wrexham FC, across the areas of Wrexham, Flintshire and Denbighshire.

As a Foundation we are looking to provide a quality service to the communities around the Wrexham area and beyond. We are currently working in three counties but aspire in the future to work our way along the North Wales coast.

We are very fortunate to have a Board of Trustees who are very influential in their own areas and have high levels of expertise and a team of coaches that are enthusiastic, hard working and realise what we are trying to achieve in our communities.

We have a number of core programmes and projects currently in place and have in the past 18 months, increased boys and girls participation, taken our first steps into provision for the disabled and have engaged with young adults from the Princes Trust with the outcome of paid work. Last year alone we engaged with over 15,000 children and young adults and we are pushing to increase this figure each day.
