An updated ‘Version 2’ of the Essex County FA ‘Covid-19 Club Resource Guide’ can now be viewed and downloaded below, providing essential links to funding opportunities and support for local grassroots football clubs.
A special document has been created which contains useful information, tips and ideas to help keep clubs functioning and working as best they can during the coming weeks and months. The guidance also features updates on tools, online webinars, safeguarding and coach education, with Version 1 proving popular back in May.
Grassroots clubs and organisations all over the country are experiencing many different challenges due to the Coronavirus pandemic. The guide features Covid-19-specific information, such as funding avenues which clubs can explore. Other parts of the resource provide details which will prove beneficial while clubs gradually resume safe football activity.
Essex County FA Football Development Manager, Nick Emery, commented: “We found local stakeholders really appreciated the information within Version 1 of the guide, so we’re delighted to provide updated guidance in Version 2. We hope everyone is safe and well within our respective clubs during these unprecedented times.”
A staff contacts page is included at the back of the guide if clubs require further information or support. Details on grassroots Essex football are also available in the menus above, by following @EssexCountyFA on Twitter and by searching for ‘EssexFootball’ on Facebook.
