Our History

County in the Community (CITC) was established in September 2013 when Newport County AFC gained football league status. In June 2015 County in the Community became a registered charity. We use the power of sport, education and training to engage with all members of the Gwent-wide community - regardless of age, ethnicity, physical ability or economic status. Through the delivery of our various projects we aim to change lives, inspire sport/physical activity participation, improve health/wellbeing and build greater community cohesion.


Our mission, through the power of sport, is to provide sporting, educational and physical activity programmes that enrich the lives of people living across Gwent - regardless of age, ethnic origin, economic status or physical ability.
