The Shaun Barker Foundation was set up in late 2014 by Derby County Football Club captain Shaun Barker. In 2012 Shaun suffered a severe knee injury during a match, and whilst he has always been keen to give something back to the community that has supported him, he felt that the appearances asked of him through the club just weren't personal enough.

So he decided to set up his own Foundation to help people in the City of Derby and the surrounding areas.


In early 2015 The Shaun Barker Foundation was set up with the aim to help as many people in the Derby area. An aim to help underprivileged children was as the forefront of it all. Although we are in the early stages, the response and support received has been overwhelming and we are beginning to create an exciting charity that will help raise money and awareness for three key areas Shaun had chosen; Arts and Culture, Social Care and Sports in the Community


The Shaun Barker Foundation is dedicated to helping raise money and awareness in the city of Derby. Three key areas have been chosen, Arts and Culture, Social Care and Sports in the Community with a focus on underprivileged children at the forefront. We are lead by a passion and a drive to make a positive difference in the community.

Shaun chose close friends and family as his initial team to take the foundation forward. Each offer different strengths but all have the same drive and understanding of how the charity is to progress, and what it will take to get there. We are expecting to be adding more members to the team as it continues to grow.
