We are committed to having close involvement with the local community and voluntary organisations.
We already have established links with a local secondary school, where 6th form students attend a weekly football session with our young people, giving them an opportunity to work alongside other young people.
Ride High is a Milton Keynes based charity that works to help transform the lives of disadvantaged children, by giving them the opportunity to look after horses and ponies. They visit each week and bring along a couple of their ponies, which are groomed, fed and walked around the grounds by the young people. Time spent with the horses promotes confidence, responsible behaviour, respect and trust. It has been a very successful intervention.
Our education department also has close links with the MK Dons’ Sports & Education Trust.
Our young people are also encouraged to take part in local and national charity fundraising events.
