The FA, Premier League and UK Government created the Football Foundation in 2000 to drive investment to improve grassroots football facilities. Since its launch, it has invested in more than 16,000 projects across England.
Despite this success, improving facilities is more vital than ever. Much must be done to transform the fortunes of poor-quality grass pitches and address the huge under-supply of artificial pitches.
Kent FA plays a vital role in supporting clubs and organisations to access funding for facility projects at a local level.
