WELCOME TO THE FA CHARTER STANDARD
Proud to support leagues and clubs where people want to play football
The FA is PROUD to make Charter Standard part of grassroots football in England.
The FA Charter Standard Programme is The FA’s accreditation scheme open to all grassroots clubs. It aims to raise standards in the grassroots game through supporting the development of clubs. It also recognises and rewards commitment, quality and achievement.
These are the clubs who demonstrate they offer well-run and sustainable football. Those who achieve The FA Charter Standard are proud to prioritise qualified coaching and safeguarding as well as the values of The FA’s Respect Programme as part of their game.
We encourage all clubs to explore the opportunity to become FA Charter Standard accredited, qualifying the relevant individuals to make the on-pitch environment a safe place and putting in place the policies and documents off-pitch to make sure they are built to last. When the time comes there will be an expectation and commitment for all accredited clubs to maintain or raise the standards and requirements that make The FA’s kitemark accreditation programme PROUD to be the best.
