Famous Fiver Appeal

Hibernian Community Foundation enriches the lives of thousands of people of all ages, abilities, and backgrounds through the power of football and the Hibernian brand name. We are a registered charity  and need to generate our own income to help improve the lives of local people and communities in Edinburgh and the Lothians.

The Need

Many see Edinburgh as a rich and prosperous city but there are areas of significant deprivation affecting the health and life chances of thousands of people. 25% of children in Edinburgh are living in poverty, older people in Edinburgh have been shown to be  at more risk of social isolation than other parts of the country, and alcohol and substance abuse continues to affect families and local communities.

How is the Foundation helping?

We deliver a wide range of programmes across Edinburgh and the Lothians, working with local people to reduce deprivation and improve lives.

To do this we focus on increasing participation in lifelong learning; improve mental and physical wellbeing; reducing social isolation; improving community safety and of course providing opportunities to play for Hibernian Football Club at a community level.
