In February, the Isle of Man Football Association began an initiative to address the issue of Diversity and Inclusion in Isle of Man Football by surveying the football community in the island. This first step is now complete with over 250 people responding to the survey.
We would like to thank all the players, parents, referees, coaches and others who gave their views and especially to those who shared their personal experiences. Thanks also to local player, Furo Davies, and Steve Smithies - National Coach Development Lead (Diversity & Inclusion)- from The FA, for their support and help in formulating this initiative.
Over the next few weeks we will be analysing the results and putting together an action plan. We will be sharing our plans along with the survey results (while maintaining respondents’ anonymity) once this is complete.
