As a club aiming to embed ourselves firmly within and support our local community, Hendon FC are proud to support The FA's Equality Policy and we have worked with our youth teams to develop our own policy to further this commitment.
For further details or if you have any concerns, please contact our welfare officer John Creith via phone on 07946305661 or email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
The aim of this policy is to ensure that everyone is treated fairly and with respect and that Hendon FC is equally accessible to all.
Hendon FC is responsible for setting standards and values to apply throughout the Club. Football belongs to, and should be enjoyed by, anyone who wants to participate in it.
Hendon FC in all its activities, will not discriminate or in any way, treat anyone less favourably on grounds of age, gender, gender reassignment, sexual orientation, marital status, race, nationality, ethnic origin, colour, religion or belief, ability or disability. The club will ensure it treats people fairly and with respect and that it will provide access and opportunities for all members of the community to take part in and enjoy its activities.
We will not tolerate harassment, bullying, abuse or victimisation of an individual, which for the purposes of this policy and the actions and sanction applicable is regarded as discrimination. This includes sexual or racially based harassment or other discrimatory behaviour, whether physical or verbal. The club will work to ensure that such behaviour is met with appropriate action in whatever context it occurs. This policy is fully supported by the Club Directors and Officials who are responsible for the implementation of this policy.
Hendon FC is committed to taking positive action where inequalities exist and to the development of a programme of ongoing training and awareness raising events and activities in order to promote the eradication of discrimination and promote equality in football.
We are committed to a policy of equal treatment of all members and require all members to abide and adhere to these policies and the requirements of the Equality Act 2010.
Hendon FC commit to the immediate investigation of any claims, when it is brought to our attention, of discrimination on the above grounds and where such is found to be the case, a requirement that the practice stop and sanctions imposed as appropriate. Our commitment is to confront and eliminate discrimination whether by reason of age, gender, gender reassignment, sexual orientation, marital status, race, nationality, ethnic origin, colour, religion or belief, ability or disability and to encourage equal opportunities.
