The IAG acts as the check and balance to Devon FA's equality, diversity and inclusion work. It comprises 8 representatives of grassroots football with collective knowledge and experience of specific aspects of equality, diversity and inclusion such as:
- Gender equality (not the development of women's football);
- Disability equality (not the development of disability football);
- Mental health;
- Lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender and faith communities.
The Inclusion Advisory Group meets quarterly and is a sub-group of the main Devon FA Board. The IAG reports into the Devon FA Board.
The group will support the County planning process, foster good relationships with the local community so that football can be used as a vehicle to create positive sporting opportunities and increase participation for all. They will also eliminate unlawful discrimination, bullying, harassment and victimisation, and any form of abuse directed at specific groups.
