Football is open and accessible for all
DORSET FA INCLUSION ADVISORY GROUP (IAG)
We recently established an Inclusion Advisory Group (IAG) to help drive the opportunities for everyone to become involved in football.
The IAG will support English Football’s Inclusion and Anti-Discrimination Plan, which brings together varied stakeholders from across football to promote inclusion and tackle discrimination in all forms.
The plan encourages greater inclusion in the game, and ensures that the services Dorset FA provides are relevant to the needs of all football communities in the county.
Dorset FA’s Inclusion Advisory Group has 4 key goals:
Widen football’s talent pool-by recruiting volunteer IAG members to support Dorset FA develop inclusive county development plans.
Clarify anti-discrimination regulations and sanctions by assisting with raising awareness of the minimum five match ban for abusive or discriminatory behaviour; and mandatory equality education.
Encourage reporting of discrimination within football community on how to report discrimination, and advising on tactics to instil confidence in the reporting and disciplinary process.
Increase knowledge and awareness-by supporting Dorset FA with embedding inclusive practices within existing development programmes, and promoting education in equality and diversity.
