We are proud to support the Community Sports Foundation as our chosen charity
The Community Sports Foundation help over 38,000 people every year achieve their goals through sport, supporting some of the most disadvantaged, disabled and talented people across Norfolk. The Foundation’s vision is to help people achieve their goals by delivering quality, innovative services through football and sport.
Established in January 1992 through a pioneering partnership with Norfolk County Football Association and Norwich City Football Club the charity formerly known as Norwich City / Norfolk County FA Football in the Community managed and delivered football activities predominantly through schools coaching sessions and soccer schools.
Since then the Foundation has continued to develop and help some of the most disadvantaged, disabled and talented people. A full history can be read here.
This culminated in 2017 when the Foundation announced the acquisition of the former Anglian Windows Sports and Social Club site in Horsford and revealed plans to redevelop the site as a new community hub.
In 2018 CSF Trustee Jake Humphrey was on hand to launch the #BuildTheNest campaign, to raise £9.4m for the second phase of development at The Nest.
Money raised so far has helped thousands of people across Norfolk supporting;
- Downs Syndrome Football Team

- Disability Elite athletes compete at high levels
- 12 Special Educational Needs schools with weekly sports sessions
- Adult day care centres
