Local Enterprise

Roberto and Pablo Zabaleta at Newham University Hospital

In supporting local enterprise, the Club contributes in a number of ways:

  • £15 million of supply chain spending with local Living Wage employers
  • 2,700 jobs created by West Ham United in Stratford
  • Just under half of all staff are residents of boroughs local to the club
  • Delivering a sporting legacy by lead-funding the Newham Athletics Network which offers a route into elite athletics
  • Aside from the Club’s official charity, the West Ham United Foundation, it has seven charity partners (DT38, Moore Family Foundation, Bobby Moore Fund, Blesma for Injured Veterans, Ambition Aspire Achieve, Richard House Children’s Hospice, Saint Francis Hospice)
