Equality Survey extended

We've extended the closing date and announced new prizes

We've extended our Equality Survey!

Why are we doing this?

In February 2022, we launched our 2022 Equality Survey.  We have received 1100 responses so far, but we want to give more people the opportunity to respond to help us to shape the future of football in the region and therefore, we have extended the survey until 31st May 2022.


At Northumberland FA, we believe that Football is for everyone; it belongs to and should be enjoyed by anyone who wants to participate in it.  We also strongly believe that football has the power to inspire, unite and create opportunities for all.  However, to fully achieve this vision and improve the game for all participants, we need to better understand the demographic makeup of all those taking part in football, as this will enable us to examine where there is both low and high engagement and what groups of people we potentially aren’t catering for in terms of provision.  We will also use the information gathered in this survey to compare to CENSUS when this is released in June 2022, which may highlight further gaps in provision


As a thank you for completing this Equality Survey, any entries received before 11:59pm on Sunday 1st May will be entered into a prize draw to Win a pair of Hospitality Tickets for Newcastle United U23 vs Blyth Spartans in the 2022 Northumberland FA Senior Cup Final on Thursday 5th May 2022 at St James Park.  Winners will be contacted on Monday 2nd April and there are 10 Prizes available!!!


Who do we want to hear from?

We want to hear from any Over 18 Player, Coach (Including Assistant) and Referee who has not yet completed the Equality Survey. 


It is essential that this survey is completed anonymously and therefore the only additional information we require are in Questions 11 and 12, which ask for your best contact telephone number and role in the game.  Please DO NOT add an email address or anything that may make you identifiable in this section.  To ensure anonymity, your telephone number will be added to the relevant prize draw and then immediately removed from the survey, meaning we will not be able to identify which surveys belonged to the winners.  We will check winners’ names against The FA database to ensure you meet the criteria of entry, as a player, coach or referee registered to Northumberland FA.


Information will be stored in line with Northumberland FA’s Data Protection Policy which can be found here.


Please note, the survey completion requirements are 1 per person, with 1 entry into the Prize Draw.  Any breach of these conditions will result in expulsion from the Prize Draw.
