What is The FA Charter Standard?
Charter Standard is open to grassroots football clubs and leagues. The programme is open For All and includes adult, youth, male and female formats.
The programme encourages improvement across grassroots football and clubs who achieve The FA Charter Standard status are able to demonstrate that they have what it takes to provide the best standard of grassroots football.
Charter Standard helps clubs develop policies and practices making them proud to provide football in a fun and safe environment. This means that clubs are better placed to attract and retain players, helping them to grow sustainably.
Help and support for meeting the criteria is available to clubs and leagues with first time funding being available to clubs to enrol coaches onto The FA Level 1 in Coaching Football.
Clubs and leagues who achieve The FA Charter Standard status receive additional support and resources including:
Support from The FA and County FA
Your County FA is set up to help clubs and leagues achieve The FA Charter Standard accreditation.
