As part of the innovative plans, the Chair of the Suffolk FA Youth Council will have full voting rights on the Suffolk FA Council – making Suffolk FA among the first County Football Associations in England to do this.
There are three roles within the new Youth Council:
- Vice Chair
- Council Member
The Youth Council is for young people aged between 14 and 22 to give them a platform to aid increase participation amongst youth in grassroots football and to give them a voice in shaping the future of the game. The Youth Council will also have a predetermined budget to spend on projects that they feel are important.
This is an exciting opportunity to ensure that the skills and experiences of our participants are reflected through the work of Council.
We are excited by the prospect of working with the Youth Council for many years to come for the benefit of the game in the County.
