Anti Discrimination Policy

 

St. More Juniors F.C. is responsible for setting standards and values to apply throughout the club at every level.

Football belongs to and should be enjoyed by everyone, equally.

Our commitment is to confront and eliminate discrimination whether by reason of sex, sexual orientation, race, nationality, ethnic origin, colour, religion or disability.

 

This includes:

 

  • The advertisement for volunteers.
  • The selection of candidates for volunteers.
  • Courses.
  • External coaching and education activities and awards.
  • Football development activities.
  • Selection for teams.
  • Appointments to honorary positions.

 

St. More Juniors F.C. will not tolerate sexual or racist based harassment or other discriminatory behaviour whether physical or verbal and will work to ensure that such behaviour is met with appropriate action in whatever context it occurs.

 

St. More Juniors F.C. is committed to the development of the programme of ongoing training and awareness raising events and activities in order to promote the eradication or discrimination within its own organization and in the wider context, within football as a whole.

 

 

Equal Opportunities Policy

 

St. More Football Club is committed to a policy of equal treatment of all members and requires all members of whatever level of authority to abide and adhere to this general principle and the requirements of the codes of practice issued by the Equal Opportunities Commission and Commission for Racial Equality.

 

All members are expected to abide by the requirements of the Race Relations Act of 1676, Sex Discrimination Act of 1986 and Disability Act of 1995. Specifically discrimination is prohibited in:

 

Treating any individual on grounds of gender, colour, marital status, race, nationality, or ethnic or national origin, religion, sexual orientation or disability less favourably than others.

 

Expecting an individual solely on the grounds stated above to comply with the requirement(s) for any reason whatsoever related to their membership, which are different to the requirements for others.

 

Imposing on an individual, requirements which are in effect more onerous on that individual than they are on others. For example this would include applying a condition (which is not warranted by the requirements of the position) which makes it more difficult for member of a particular race or sex to comply than others not of that race or sex.

 

Victimisation of an individual.

 

Harassment of an individual (which for the purposed of this policy and the actions and sanction applicable thereto is regarded as discrimination).

 

Any other act or omission of an act, which has as its effect the disadvantaging of a member against another, or others purely on the above grounds. Thus, in all the clubs recruitment, selection, promotion and training processes, as well as disciplinary and other matters (in other words all instances where those in control of members are required to make judgments between them) it is essential that merit, experience, skills and temperament are considered as objectively as possible.

 

St. More F.C. commits itself to the immediate investigation of any claims of discrimination on the above grounds and where such is found to be the case, a requirement that the practice cease forthwith, restitution of damage or loss (if necessary) and to the investigation of any member accused of discrimination.

 

Any member found guilty of discrimination will be instructed to desist forthwith. Since discrimination in its many forms is against the football clubs policy, any member offending will be dealt with under the disciplinary procedure.
