Autism Awareness

Staffordshire FA is committed to supporting grassroots football in Staffordshire with developing a greater understanding of Autism and how we can create an autism friendly environment with grassroots football in Staffordshire.

Our key objectives are:

  • To raise awareness of autism through football within the grassroots game & the support networks, opportunities available within the county to participate/volunteer.
  • To support grassroots members with training & resources to further support creating an autism friendly environment within grassroots football.
  • To create an autism awareness campaign in football weekend in April (Annually), linked to World Autism Awareness Day. To promote the opportunities for participation, inclusivity & sharing positive role models and stories within Staffordshire.
