Inclusion Zone

Welcome to the West Riding FA Inclusion zone

West Riding FA and The FA are here to ensure people from all backgrounds can participate to the full extent of their own ambitions and abilities, regardless of their age, sex, gender re-assignment, disability, marital and civil partnership status, pregnancy and maternity, religion or belief, race or sexual orientation.

Both West Riding FA and The FA are working to ensure everyone has a fair and equal opportunity to be part of the game.

We are passionate about equality in all areas of football and will drive forward our equality and inclusion priorities year after year.

inclusion advisory network

The virtual network aims to connect individuals and/or groups from our communities who are interested in, or play an active role in, promoting Inclusion, diversity and anti-discrimination.  

The network aims to promote the sharing of information on local initiatives, campaigns, interventions and events that may be of interest to the broader network. It will also provide a forum for the West Riding County FA, and members, to disseminate information on local, regional and national initiatives.
