COMMUNITY ORGANISATION AWARD FOR RACE, RELIGION & FAITH –
Kick It Out is football’s equality and inclusion organisation. Working throughout the football, educational and community sectors to challenge discrimination, encourage inclusive practices and campaign for positive change, Kick It Out has helped enact a huge cultural shift in the approach of individual supporters, clubs and footballing institutions to equality. At grassroots and in the professional game, Kick It Out is a reporting bureau that will raise incidents of discrimination with the relevant authorities and support victims through the process. The organisation has supported thousands of victims since its inception, and has created a number of educational resources which teach stewards how to correctly identify discrimination towards marginalised groups. Whether it’s attempting to enact cultural change or offering support to victims of discrimination, Kick It Out has been a leading organisation in attempting to achieve cohesion in British society.
SHARING IS CARING!
