Improving the Management of your Club
The club accreditation scheme aims to help clubs improve what they are good at and support areas identified for further development, with the overall aim of delivering better opportunities to all involved with the club. The club accreditation folder will also help your club's administrator to keep club policies and procedures organised.
The provision of equal opportunities is the key objective of the Club Accreditation Scheme. Put simply equal opportunities means that no individual regardless of sex, age, ethnic group, disability or ability is discriminated against, so every individual has equal right to participate in football. To help clubs implement good practice, a sample equality policy has been developed for clubs to adopt. This policy should provide your club with a framework to ensure your club is equitable.
FAW Welfare policy
The FAW believes that every adult has a legal and moral responsibility to protect children, young people and vunerable adults from abuse. In 2002, to ensure the best interests of all individuals involved in football, the FAW introduced its welfare policy.
It is paramount that your club is aware of the FAW Welfare Policy and its implications to all those individuals who have a duty of care in the football environment.
