Equality, Diversity & Inclusion
We are determined to ensure that every person regardless of disability, sex, age, sexual orientation, gender reassignment, marriage and civil partnership status, pregnancy and maternity, race, religion or belief, (together the ‘Protected Characteristics’ under the Equality Act 2010) has a genuine opportunity to participate to their full potential at all levels and in all roles within football. We will operate our club in line with the principles of the Equality Act 2010 in affording equitable opportunities to everyone involved in football.
Our Equality, Diversity & Inclusion Policy has the following objectives:
To ensure that everyone who participates in football, in whatever capacity, receives fair and equitable treatment.
To adopt a planned approach to eliminating perceived barriers which discriminate against or exclude particular groups.
To ensure that no one working for, wishing to work for or working on behalf of the club receives less favourable treatment on the grounds set out in the Statement of Intent and that written Policies and Procedures underpin our Equity Policy.
To give clear guidance and communication to all individuals either governing or working for the club on its commitment to Equity.
To ensure that the content of policies, procedures, competitions, regulations (where applicable) and assessments provides equity for all except where specific situations or conditions properly or reasonably prevent this.
We have adopted systems and procedures from the Scottish F.A. which ensure all materials prepared, produced or distributed and all relevant public statements made reflect our commitment to equality, diversity and inclusion.
To achieve these objectives, we will promote and encourage Scottish F.A. strategies.
