SURVEY: Girls Football in the North East

Please find below information on a Girls’ Football Participation study being carried out by Romain Hourrier who is currently a student at Northumbria University.

The aim of the project is to find out the reasons why girls start, carry on and stop playing football and views on current FA strategies, with a view to finding solutions to improve girls’ participation.

Northumberland FA have forwarded this survey to support the project and to ask Club Secretaries and SSE Wildcat Centre Leads to forward this survey on to any willing participants involved in the club/centre as parent/guardian, coach or volunteer over the age of 18 years of age.  

The project aims to target female participants, that play or have previously played football in Northumberland, Newcastle and North Tyneside, and to also capture the views of individuals involved in the game as a coach, parent, volunteer or employee.

Take the Survey
Northumberland FA requires participants to adhere to relevant data protection and safeguarding processes  when disseminating this information including the use of the Participant Information Sheet guidance around gaining parental consent prior to completing the survey for any Under 18 participants. 

This information must be sent direct to parents/guardians for completion with any Under 18 participants.  It is required that clubs/centres follow the FA Communicating with Under 18 Safeguarding policies and procedures.  Good practice guides can be found here.
