SSUK Members join West Riding FA
Sikh Sport UK members, Sharron Sandhu and Nirvair Gill, have been selected to sit on the West Riding County Football Association Inclusion Advisory Group. Following on from their applications and a public ratification period, both members have formally accepted the offer.
The WRCFA IAG is looking to make recommendations, from a grassroot level, to the FA regarding equality, social inclusion and representation.
The IAG will also assist the WRCFA to measure the impact of equality and anti-discrimination work in line with English Footballs Inclusion and Anti-Discrimination Action Plan and the Preliminary Level of the Equality Standard.
Sharron and Nirvair are looking foward to tackling under-representation which will lead to an increase in the diversity of talent in football. Other roles they may be expected to take up include clarifying procedures to reporting discrimation and raising awareness of eqaulity and inclusion within football.
We will post regular updates regarding their progress and wish them luck on yet another volunteering choice they have made!
