Inclusion Advisory Group - Applications now open

The Amateur FA is looking for members to join their Inclusion Advisory Group (IAG).

The IAG is key in promoting football for everyone and enables the Amateur FA to increase awareness, understanding and knowledge of inclusion, equality and diversity, so that we will better meet the needs of all our communities who take part in football and ultimately our business.

The IAG will be made up of representatives from across grassroots football with knowledge and experience of specific aspects of equality, diversity and inclusion such as:
gender equality (not the development of women's football) 
disability equality (not the development of disability football) 
mental health 
faith communities

The role of the IAG is to:

1. Advance equality of opportunity amongst all our football communities
2. Foster good relationships with and between all our football communities
3. Clarify regulations and sanctions related to discriminatory behaviour
4. Enable transparency and confidence when dealing with matters related to discriminatory behaviour
5. Advice the Amateur FA board

In doing so we aim to:

Bring a diverse perspective to the Amateur FA
Set clear targets within our county plan to ensure we meet the needs of the whole of our football community
Support community engagement, consultations, development programs and disciplinary procedures
Act as ambassadors for the Amateur FA in our football communities
Identify any equality issues, support the identification and delivery of solutions
Promote and encourage the benefits of addressing equality issues within the football community
Identify key issues and trends that will promote the growth of the game through inclusion and diversity interventions
Promote inclusion and diversity in football
Devise, monitor and evaluate CFA secondary key performance indicators for inclusion and diversity
Meet a minimum of three times a year
