SFA Reporting Discrimination

Scottish FA introduce discrimination reporting mechanism
The Scottish FA has today launched their Grassroots Discrimination Reporting
Online Form as well as the Grassroots Discrimination Reporting Guide as part of
their continued commitment for Scottish football to be representative and
reflective of the country’s demographic.
Following the recent launch of the Scottish FA’s Equality Framework, Football
Unites, the discrimination reporting initiative allows any form of discrimination
within Scottish grassroots football to be reported and investigated effectively.
The reporting of discrimination within the grassroots game will not only allow
the game to be a more safe and enjoyable environment, but also allows the
Scottish FA to monitor potential high-risk areas as well as educational needs
within the Scottish game.
The Scottish FA Grassroots Discrimination Reporting Mechanism and Guide,
launched today, aims to assist in the understanding regarding different forms of
discrimination, how they may occur within Scottish football as well as providing
guidance to effectively challenge and report any potential breaches.
If there are any incidences of discrimination within the grassroots game, people
are now encouraged to access the reporting form on the Scottish FA website,
allowing people to send in details of what they have experienced or witnessed.
This is bolstered by the Scottish FA Equality E-Learning course which can be
accessed within the Scottish FA Coach Education pathway this week .
David McArdle, Scottish FA’s Diversity and Inclusion Manager said: “The Scottish
FA is committed to making Scottish football representative and reflective of the
demographic of Scotland. Our mission is to ensure there are no barriers to
participate and access football in Scotland.
“This latest initiative will increase the understanding and reporting of
discrimination across Scotland and in turn allow the game to ensure it acts on
these instances and help eradicate this problem in society.
“The online form is easy to access and fill out, giving people the opportunity to
place on record any forms of discrimination they’ve experienced or witnessed,
with the option to remain anonymous if they wish.”
