Testimonial: Leicestershire & County FA

The Race Equality Centre:


Over the past year The Race Equality Centre have supported and helped the Leicestershire & Rutland County Football Association to further its equality objectives.


This support has always been professionally provided in such a way as to allow for effective discussion and, when necessary, the positive challenging of established approaches so that effective change and development can be achieved.


In particular The Race Equality Centre has supported the investigation, analysis and decision making with regard to high profile discipline cases where race has been an aggravating factor. Whilst such cases are often emotive and highly charged the input from The Race Equality Centre staff has always been calm and considered and has therefore enabled the Association to move forward in its approach.


Additionally, The Race Equality Centre is supporting the Association to deliver organisational changes that will further embed inclusion in every aspect of its work.


Without the support of The Race Equality Centre it is unlikely that the Association would have been able to make the changes it has nor to plan confidently for its future equality initiatives. Therefore, whilst not only appreciating the support we have already received the Association would wish to see and support the continuation of that service.
