Code of Governance 2



Dorset Code Governance.

The vision of Dorset FA is to inspire all communities in Dorset by using the power of football and our mission is to be recognised as an organisation which inspires and governs football in partnership with our stakeholders, delivered to create a fun, safe and inclusive environment in Dorset. We aim to achieve this inline with our values of being:

Approachable, Supportive, Passionate, Innovative, Respectful, Engaging.


The Dorset FA Strategy is there to provide stakeholders with details of how we plan to achieve our mission to ensure it is fully accessible. It also sets out our priorities up to June 2024 and be read HERE.

Dorset FA Parliament of Football

Dorset FA’s Parliament of Football is in place to engage with the grassroots football community across the county. At least two Parliament of Football meetings shall be held in each season. All members (members as defined within the Articles of the Association) and others as determined by the DCFA Board of Directors will be invited to the meetings which will discuss pertinent football matters but will not have any decision-making powers.

Thanks to all who attended meetings in the 2023/24 season contributing to the development of our 2024-28 Dorset FA strategy – details of which will be published shortly. 

Meet the Board

Our Board of Directors ensure Dorset County Football Association is effectively and efficiently run, with the appropriate oversight and governance, in line with the County FA Code of Governance.
