Inclusion Advisory Group Recruitment

We are recruiting new members for our Inclusion Advisory Group (IAG)

Inclusion Advisory Group (IAG) Recruitment

The Gloucestershire FA is fully committed to ensuring that opportunities for individuals to participate are created across all levels of the game. We will create positive environments to break down barriers and challenge discrimination.

The Inclusion Advisory Group (IAG) acts as a critical friend to Gloucestershire FA to provide valuable advice and guidance around equality and inclusion in relation to our National Game Delivery Strategy and annual delivery plans and services. It also provides advice to assist in the development of a diverse and inclusive paid and volunteer workforce at all levels that reflects the community within Gloucestershire.

The group reports directly into to the Gloucestershire FA Board on all issues relating to inclusion, fairness, equality and diversity.

There are challenges in Gloucestershire to achieve a representative group reflecting the diversity of the County; however, we will seek to be representative of the communities that Gloucestershire FA serve. We are particularly interested in applications from females, those from the LGBT+ community and anyone with a passion and involvement in disability football. Individuals with a general background and/or passion for equality and diversity are also encouraged to apply to become members of this group.

We are looking for individuals with a passion for and/or background in inclusion to join the group. If you are passionate about football, want to inspire people at all levels to change and reward those who make grassroots football in Gloucestershire such a success, then we would like to hear from you.

The deadline for applications is 6 May 2022. If you have any questions about the IAG and becoming a member, please get in contact with our Referee Development and Equality Officer, Roger Vaughan via or 01454 615888 (option 4).
