Newark Town FC is delighted to announce it has received the FA Charter Standard Community Club status
The FA Charter Standard Community Club status is an acknowledgement of the most advanced level of club development and football provision. There are only thirteen other clubs in Nottinghamshire with this accreditation.
This is great news and is a celebration of all the hard work the directors, managers, coaches and volunteers do to support the club.
The club would also like to thank the staff at Notts FA who have supported us throughout this process, in particular, a big thanks goes to Callum Convery for his help.
The club would also like to thank our Chairman Chris Wade and Youth Secretary Carla Brown, who worked very hard in completing the application process, collecting all the information and making sure we met all the criteria.
Launched in 2001, The FA Charter Standard Programme, supported by McDonald’s, is The FA’s accreditation scheme for grassroots clubs and leagues. Its goal is to raise standards in grassroots football, support the development of clubs and leagues, recognising and rewarding them for their commitment and achievements. With this in mind, The FA Charter Standard accreditation is awarded to clubs and leagues rigorously adjudged to be well-run and sustainable and which prioritise child protection, quality coaching and implementation of the Respect programme.
Overall, FA Charter Standard status is a clear demonstration to all parents, sponsors and the public, that a club:
• Is well-organised, safe and offers opportunities for all
• Has FA-qualified coaches as standard
• Adheres to FA Respect Policies and Codes of Conduct
• Prioritises Child Welfare
• Maintains appropriate levels of discipline
• Has access to the County FA and FA regional workforces
