Headed by Mark McGowan (The club’s Chaplain), who explained

“The excellent programmes are delivered through presence in schools and working with disadvantaged or socially excluded groups in society, through crime reduction initiatives and community based football coaching sessions. The types of programmes delivered by FFCITC fit under four key aims: raising educational achievement, encouraging healthier lifestyles, bringing communities together and mentoring and serving the local community through different actions. We also want to teach moral lifestyle through various activities.”
