Respect is the collective responsibility of everyone involved in football to create a fair, safe and enjoyable environment in which the game can take place.
The FA’s Respect programme provides tools for coaches, referees, volunteers and parents from grassroots to elite football – to help ensure a safe, positive environment in which to play the game.
In Manchester our leagues are signed up to the FA Respect iniative and all FA Charter Standard Clubs endorse the programme with many embedding a specific Respect coordinator within their club or league.

The posters attached below prove that when Respect isn't addressed correctly, football isn't such a beautiful game after all. If your club or league has an issue to address, contact the Raising Standards Hub on 0161 203 2990.
