Club In FA Social Impact Pilot


The Club has been selected by The FA to take part in a Social Impact pilot – we are one of only ten clubs chosen nationally.

The FA is looking at how to help clubs like ours continue to thrive and be successful by being really important parts of our community.
We want you to take part in an on-line survey that will help everyone better understand the role of your football club in your lives and the value we have to wider society. The results will be really valuable to the club and provide us with a monetary value of our social impact.

Why are we doing this?

The FA has invited 10 pilot clubs to take part in a pioneering project that will measure the social impact that large community clubs have on their local community. Social Impact, also known as Social Return On Investment (SROI), is a measure of the benefit that a club has on its members and its community. The project will provide CLUB with a basic report and monetary value that covers the following areas:

• Physical Wellbeing
• Mental Wellbeing
• Individual Development
• Social & Community Development
• Economic Development

SROI is increasingly used by UK Government, Sport England, local authorities and other funding bodies, and would support our club in existing or future funding applications by converting our football and other activities into a measured community benefit and financial value.

So – what do you have to do?

If you are 18 and over, please spend 10 minutes to complete an on-line survey via the link below – it’s really easy to complete. Please comment when you have completed.
We know you are busy but we hope you can a short amount of time out of your schedule to
help us by filling in. All individual results are anonymous.
So put the kettle on, settle down and please give it 10 minutes of your time – you can win tickets to an England game at Wembley or vouchers for Kitlocker!

Many thanks in anticipation of your help.
