We believe equality for all is a basic human right and we actively oppose all forms of unlawful and unfair discrimination. We celebrate the diversity of society and are striving to promote and reflect that diversity within our own structure. With this in mind, we have achieved the Preliminary Level of the National Standards for Equality which will demonstrate and measure our commitment to this. You can find details of our inclusion and equality policy within this section.
We employ a designated Welfare Officer who assists clubs and leagues in all matters of safeguarding. We place the safeguarding and welfare of young people high on our agenda and believe that every child or young person who plays or participates in football should be able to take part in an enjoyable and safe environment and be protected from abuse. Each youth club and league within the county is required to possess a designated and qualified Welfare Officer. If you are involved in youth football, then make sure you click on the 'Welfare' link for greater details.
And it doesn’t stop there. If you need help with funding, want to get involved in disability football, are interested in the Football Futures programme or want further information about our role in schools and colleges football within Essex, then keep exploring this section.
