These roles will be aligned to ensure that they have a skilled and empathetic workforce to support the growth of recreational football for all communities who are currently disproportionately represented across the game.


To do this the FA will use a diverse workforce of people and integral allies from the communities in which we wish to extend the provision of football in a way that is right for them and their needs.
