Independent Discipline Panel Members

Somerset FA are looking for independent members for discipline commissions and the LFADP

The FA Football’s Inclusion and Anti Discrimination Plan 2013-2017 brings together varied stakeholders from across the game with a comprehensive plan to promote inclusion and tackle discrimination in all its forms. The plan seeks to address issues and incidents of discrimination in English Football and encourages greater inclusion across the game. 

As part of the plan, Somerset Football Association (SFA) is now seeking to appoint further local members for its Local Football Anti Discrimination Panel, (LFADP). SFA is looking for a diverse group of committed individuals across the Country with a variety of backgrounds and to be reflective of the local community and local football teams. Applicants need to be independent from The FA and County FA structures and have relevant experience of equality and/or judicial fundamentals to sit and adjudicate on these cases. 

In addition, The FA have stated that all County FA’s must have an independent member on all Disciplinary Panels from January 2018 therefore as a result SFA is looking for a  group of committed individuals across the Country with a variety of backgrounds and to be reflective of the local community and local football teams. Applicants need to be independent from The FA and County FA Council – training will be provided.
