Stonewall FC faced Wilberforce Wanderers at Wembley

LGBTQ+ Inclusion Workshop

The first step to achieving the Lincolnshire FA LGBTQ+ Accreditation is to ensure a minimum of two club officials attend or watch a recording of an LGBTQ+ Inclusion digital workshop. Although a minimum of two club officials are required, all members of the club are welcome to attend. 

This workshop will improve your knowledge of the LGBTQ+ Community, covering topics including: 

What does LGBTQ+ mean?
Why is LGBTQ+ Inclusion important?
Reporting discrimination
What does an inclusive environment look like?
How does this vary at different age groups?
The Lincolnshire FA LGBTQ+ Accreditation 

The workshop is around an hour in length and will empower the attendees in being an ally for LGBTQ+ individuals and developing an inclusive club environment. 

Following the workshop, one of the club officials that attends the workshop must then become the club’s LGBTQ+ Ambassador, acting as a point of contact for any players, coaches, or spectators that may require support or guidance. Clubs may find it worthwhile to delegate the LGBTQ+ Inclusive Accredited Criteria to the Ambassador.

The first workshops will take place on Wednesday 19th October from 6:30pm to 8:30pm and on Wednesday 26th October from 6:30pm to 8:30pm. Attendees only need to attend one of the workshops.
