Constantly striving to create more opportunities to change lives within the community
Who We Are
Bees in the Community
The Hive Foundation works alongside Barnet Football Club and London Bees to deliver positive lifelong activities to local schools, residents and young people within our local communities of Barnet, Harrow and the surrounding counties.
The Hive Foundation provides pathways into sport including coaching, refereeing and playing.
We increase and promote the participation and awareness of women’s sport and provide more competitive sports opportunities for people within our local communities.
Through the power of football, we aim to deliver these objectives:
To promote community participation in healthy recreation by providing facilities to participate with the objective of improving participants health.
To provide and assist in providing facilities for sport and recreation for people in need. Ensuring equal opportunity no matter their age, gender, religion, disability or social-economic status. We aim to work with all members of the community with the objective of improving their conditions of life.
To advance the education of children and young people using the power of football.
Bees in the Community was originally founded in June 1999 under the name Barnet FC Community Trust as a limited company, it registered as a charity in September 2009, where the trust focused its delivery around the London Boroughs of Barnet and Harrow.
We had a further name change to The Hive Foundation in July 2016 where we expanded our reach across four boroughs where we now look to embed and further develop the work we do within the Bees in the Community Team.
