Communities Engaging With Grassroots

We recognise that many clubs across the county are becoming ever-growing organisations (in some cases, business). But, ultimately, they're providing an opportunity for people within their local community to engage in grassroots football.

Whether you are a club of 70 teams or one team, whether you have 700 members or 17 members, it's crucial that, to protect your brand and ensure you're having a positive impact within your community, it is important you align to your vision, mission and values.

Setting a vision, mission and values for any organisation helps to secure long-term success. It also ensures that the ongoing and future work and impact of all of its members is in-line with the vision, mission and values that the club holds.

Coming soon to this page will be a detailed guide which will support you, step-by-step, on how to identify and develop what your community stands for. It'll include examples of how to consult wider than your committee and why that’s important, as well as ways in which this can support raising funds and attracting new volunteers.

Within this section we will also provide real-life examples of some best practice displayed within Essex already!
