Respect is the collective responsibility of everyone involved in football to create a fair, safe and enjoyable environment in which the game can take place. This section covers the role clubs play in the Respect programme.

The FA’s Respect programme provides tools for clubs from grassroots to elite football – to help ensure a safe, positive environment in which to play the game. In Dorset, our leagues are signed up to the FA Respect programme and all FA Charter Standard Clubs endorse the programme, with many embedding a specific Respect Co-ordinator within their club or league. Dorset FA strives to give leagues as much resource and information to help implement the FA Respect programme within their club environment.

The following resources are available to utilise in your club:

The ‘Use Your Head’ seeks to help clubs & leagues combat the issues surrounding bad language in small stadia. Clubs visiting this site will be able to download flyers, posters, signage and personalise them with their own league logos. Click here

The FA Respect Barriers scheme assists leagues to get appropriate barriers for implementation of the Respect programme at club venues and facilities. Click here
