FAs Tell Us Well Tackle It campaign promises zerotolerance towards discrimination
FA's 'Tell Us - We'll Tackle It' campaign promises "zero tolerance" towards discrimination
The FA’s ‘Tell Us – We’ll Tackle It’ campaign launched today to combat discrimination in grassroots football across the UK.
The scheme looks to emphasise the importance of reporting incidents of discrimination.
A new process has been introduced which hopes to increase the speed with which discrimination cases are addressed, and ‘Tell Us – We’ll Tackle It’ wants to reassure people that it makes a tangible difference, and that the updated process is simple and effective.
The updated reporting process and website means all completed online forms will be sent directly to the relevant FA and County FA staff so they can begin any investigation process immediately, including clarity on the process and FAQs to assist with any further queries.
The FA has also created a video to outline its zero-tolerance approach, reiterating that there’s no place for discrimination in football, whether it’s online, in training, on the pitch or on the side-lines.
Ricky Stevenson, CEO of the Derbyshire FA, said: “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.
By doing this we can ensure that all incidents are rightly investigated, and the new processes introduced along with the ‘Tell Us – We’ll Tackle It’ campaign means we can hopefully address these issues quicker and more efficiently.”
