Rainbow Laces - LGBT Inclusive Club

LGBT Inclusive Club Status

The Norfolk FA LGBT Inclusive Club accreditation is a new initiative launched by Norfolk FA during the Rainbow Laces Campaign in the 2018-19 season. 

To achieve LGBT Inclusive Club status, clubs must complete the following criteria:

  • Have a club equality statement that details the ethos of the club and outlines the club’s aims around LGBT inclusion that must be displayed on the club website and publicised via their social media platforms. This can include commitments to language, behaviour and creating a welcoming atmosphere
  • Display inclusive posters provided by Stonewall to publically demonstrate your commitment to inclusion within your club
  • Use Stonewalls “no bystanders” campaign to help individuals at your club to take a stand against hateful language and discrimination
  • Club Officials, Players and Coaches to sign agreement of LGBT inclusion

Club’s achieving the status will be certificated and presented with Rainbow Corner flags to display at their club, by Norfolk County FA Chairman, Michael Banham.

Further information and guidance on become an LGBT Inclusive Club can be found in the documentation below.
