At Reading Football Club, we understand the potential that football has to make a positive impact on its local community.
We proudly play a key role in our town and across Berkshire and the Thames Valley area, in particular through the work of Reading FC Community Trust (charity number 5319170).
Whether it's running Soccer Schools in the school holidays, delivering educational programmes, hosting disability sport, facilitating social inclusion, or even our players dropping in a variety of sessions, we try to help change people's lives for the better.
