Developing New and Existing Stakeholders

We provide coaching to children and adults in Essex. This includes the England Football Accredited award, the development of women’s and girls’ football, the promotion of minority groups within the game and running courses and workshops to raise coaching standards.

We promote the activities and achievements of local players and volunteers and strategies are in place to continue this in the short and long terms.

Our Governance Team are available during office hours to provide support and assistance for our county’s volunteers. They help to make the admin linked to on-pitch misconduct, fines, charges and hearings as simple as possible.

This means the maintenance of the laws of the game and the rules and regulations which make the sport a safe, fair and enjoyable pastime is in safe hands.
