Equality Diversity and Inclusion
In pursuit of progress.
STRATEGIC INCLUSION ADVISORY GROUP (SIAG)
Our SIAG support and advise us to operate in a way that meets the needs of all of our communities and of the business. The SIAG assist in embedding inclusion fully into each year’s county plan, and ensure Football is for All.
They help to advance equality of opportunity amongst all our communities, foster relationships with all of our local communities to increase participation, and eliminate unlawful discrimination, bullying, harassment, and victimisation.
A new process has been introduced which hopes to increase the speed with which discrimination cases are addressed.
‘Tell Us – We’ll Tackle It’ wants to reassure people that reporting discrimination makes a tangible difference, and that the updated process is simple and effective.
Tackling discrimination is absolutely crucial, and it’s absolutely vital that anyone who feels they have been the subject of, or witness to, discriminatory abuse can report it to us.
EQUALITY STANDARD FOR SPORT
In August 2021 we announced that we had achieved 'Foundation Level' of the Equality Standard for Sport.
Equality, diversity and inclusion played a major role in the development of our new business strategy for 2021-24, and this represented a step towards achieving our goals.
