SUFFOLK FA have unveiled their strategy for the next three years.
The Reviving The Local Game strategy, which will be in place for 2021-2024, sets out Suffolk FA’s ambitions to return the local game to over and above pre-pandemic levels.
Suffolk FA Chief Executive Richard Neal said: “The last two seasons have provided an extraordinary challenge across all aspects of life, jeopardising the continued provision of grassroots football which provides such hope, joy, passion, excitement, and emotion within all participants.
“Whilst football clearly continues to operate with limitations, set to continue for an indefinite period of time, the strategy for the next three seasons is to rebuild the local game out of the pandemic; re-establishing clubs, leagues, walking football centres, disability provision, schools football, Just Play Centres, Wildcats, recreational participation and all other aspects of the local game as comprehensively and safely as possible.
“In parallel, we will continue developing coaches, referees, volunteers, facilities, and experiences which make people want to join and stay involved in the game.
“And finally to maximise the influence and reach of football to positively contribute to Suffolk life by tackling issues such as social isolation, mental and physical well-being, long-term health conditions, discrimination, abuse, crime, youth employability and aspiration, and community cohesion.
“That is how we, collaborating with partner organisations who share our values and ambitions, will work to build A Thriving Local Game over the next three years.”
