Football v Homophobia and Just Eat have teamed up to launch Allies United – an initiative designed to support grassroots football clubs in enabling more inclusivity in the grassroots game.
Just Eat research reveals that over 70% of people from the LGBTQIA+ community would not consider playing football, with barriers cited as concerns about homophobic and transphobic language used, a lack of feeling welcomed and there not being enough conversation around LGBTQIA+ allyship.
We want everyone to be ‘free to be’ themselves in football, regardless of gender and identity.
Delivered by the team at Football vs Homophobia, this FREE virtual workshop will provide expert advice and resources on how your club can support LGBTQ+ players and supporters.
- Introduction (including introduction to terminology)
- What we know about LGBTQ+ people, sport & physical activity
- Barriers to participation
- How to create LGBTQ+ inclusive environments
- Being an LGBTQ+ ally
The session will be held online on Wednesday 21st February- 7pm
