Equality Policy

The Sheffield & Hallamshire County FA recognises that individuals and communities may experience unlawful discrimination on the grounds of their race or ethnicity, disability, gender (including transgender and transsexual people), relationship or marital status, sexual orientation (because they are homosexual, bisexual and heterosexual), age, HIV status, language, background, physical or mental impairment, faith or religious belief or physical appearance.

We believe that equality for all is a basic human right and actively oppose all forms of unlawful and unfair discrimination as above and will not tolerate any discrimination towards staff members, volunteers or anyone who is affiliated in anyway with Sheffield & Hallamshire County FA. Anyone found to act against these rules will be dealt with accordingly by the FA and SHCFA.

We celebrate the diversity of society and are striving to promote and reflect that diversity within the County FA’s own structure.

In 2012 we achieved the Foundation Level of the Equality Standard and are working towards the Preliminary Level of the National Standards for Equality, which will demonstrate and measure our commitment to equality.

We work towards the aims and objectives set in our strategic plan. We have also developed a County FA Four Year Plan, setting out how we will promote the wide ranging equality agenda across the FA’s four strategic goals of Growth and Retention, Better Players, Running the Game and Raising Standards. It outlines the action that the County FA will be taking from time to time to ensure equality of opportunity for those administering and playing the game.

If you have any queries or questions relating to this statement or any issues relating to equality generally, please contact the Sheffield and Hallamshire County Football Association on 0114 2414992 or e-mail info@sheffieldfa.com
