Football training reward for offenders on the custodial threshold

IAC is an intensive community order for men aged from 18 to 25 from Manchester and Salford whose offences put them on the custodial threshold. The weekly sessions are free, and hosted at Broughton Hub.

FC United of Manchester is a community football club that was set up in 2005 by fans disenchanted with the Glazers’ purchase of Manchester United.
