The Scottish FA is committed to giving people of all ages and abilities the opportunity to participate equally and flourish in our national game. Whether you are a player, coach or volunteer, there is a grassroots football programme for you.

In line with our strategic commitment towards equality, and in order to further develop the game in Scotland, we are working specifically towards attracting and increasing participation from diverse under-represented groups of minority ethnic communities.

This survey is the second part of our consultation with ethnic minority and diverse communities that will enable us to draw assumptions on the impact we have made in awareness and participation of EM communities in football in the past 12-18 months.

The Scottish FA is working in partnership with BEMIS, the umbrella body for diverse minority ethnic communities in Scotland, and we are supported by the Scottish Government's CashBack for Communities fund.
