The Football Association has announced an ambitious new three-year plan titled Football Your Way, to help develop, improve and raise awareness of disability football in England.
The new plan is the first of its kind and covers seven key areas, demonstrating The FA’s commitment to ensuring that as part of the equality, diversity and inclusion strategy, disabled people have the opportunity to engage and participate in football their way, from grassroots all the way to the elite end of the game. The plan comes under the umbrella of the broader equality, diversity and inclusion strategy which is about creating A Game For All.
The launch of the three-year plan, from 2021-2024, outlines the organisation’s intentions to create a more diverse and inclusive workforce from inside The FA and out, and from top to bottom, whilst also growing participation, increasing the number and quality of coaches, developing an inclusive and diverse talent pathway, increasing support for elite players and raising the profile of disability football at every level.
Football Your Way will allow The FA to create and sustain a culture across the sport where disabled people have access to all opportunities and feel they truly belong, both on and off the pitch.
