During the 2021 / 22 season the FA are looking to deploy one Community Champion and one one Weetabix Wildcats Community Champion to support the Grassroots Game in East Riding.
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.
As part of our community champion offer, the FA have some principles of support that allow them to give structure to the roles. The roles will be:
BESPOKE - Made for a particular need in a certain area or community to encourage and support new people into roles as deliverer, volunteer, and coach.
CONNECTED - Work and are familiar within the community they wish to help creating greater confidence for community members to ‘step over the side-lines' and become involved with their local clubs.
PERSONAL - Built on relationships, trust, a purpose, and emotions rather than just a career.
LEARNING - Being curious in finding new appropriate and creative ways of empowering, engaging, and inspiring others to feel they belong.
