We are delighted to announce new training courses which will create learning opportunities and provide new skills and qualifications for people of all ages within the local community.
The Community Coaching course will allow participants to gain experience in sports and fitness coaching, including experience delivering sessions as part of the community football, schools, and Healthy Hibee programmes whilst the Filming, Photography and Website Design in Sport courses introduce students to opportunities for further study and employment in the Creative Industries, with special emphasis on sport.
We work with Edinburgh College to offer flexible IT courses to fit around individual needs while learning at their own pace with the support of tutors in a modern, friendly and well equipped environment and the new courses should prove beneficial and hopefully enjoyable for everyone taking part.

Hibernian FFiT support Pat’s chosen charity – The Child Brain Injury Trust


As part of the celebration of Hibernian Legend Pat Stanton’s 70th birthday at the match against Cowdenbeath, a team of Healthy Hibees and Football Fans in Training from Hibernian Community Foundation donned their FFiT strips and collected, inside the stadium, for Pat’s nominated charity, the Child Brain Injury Trust. (CBIT) and thanks to the generosity of both sets of supporters, collected a fantastic £639.59

The trust is an organisation that supports children, young people and their families affected by a brain injury and helps them to come to terms with what has happened. Every half hour, a child is affected by a brain injury as a result of an accident, stroke, poisoning or from illnesses such as encephalitis or meningitis. Unlike bones, scars and bruising, brain injuries may not heal and can have a devastating impact upon the life of a child and their families. This is where CBIT come in, helping to support and advise the affected family through their difficulties.

So thanks to everyone who dug out their spare change, went along to Easter Road Stadium and helped support Pat’s chosen charity on his special Birthday.

You can still also donate via text. Simply send a message on your mobile to 70070 which says CBIT14 £10 (or whatever amount you’d like to donate). This will then be added to your phone bill.
