City in the Community

City in the Community

City in the Community (CITC) was founded in 1986, aiming to forge closer links between our Club and the local community.  

With a team of 20 full time and 30 part time staff CITC run projects based around four key areas: Sport, Health, Young People and Skills & Enterprise.

Every year our award winning team engages with over 200,000 people of all ages and across all communities over Manchester, Tameside and Stockport.

Social responsibility is deep seated in our Club's heritage and essential in its future, and in this City in the Community plays a central role. Everyone involved with Manchester City in any capacity is part of the 'City family'. Together we share and work to resolve issues and develop hope and aspiration across the community.
