Supporters Club - Equality and Diversity

Equality and Diversity

At the 2020 Supporters Club AGM there will be a proposal to widen the statement of purpose for our work. This will be to explicitly include promoting equality and social inclusion within the Club. The need for us to do this has been highlighted by football’s response to the Black Lives Matter campaign. Football is our national sport and should be everyone’s game. We must make sure there is no room for prejudice at Kingstonian.

Equality and Diversity Officer and team

The Football Cub has now established a new role of Equality and Diversity Officer and a Supporters Club Equalities and Diversity team has been recruited; constituted as a sub-committee of the Supporters Club. Future activities will include support for anti-racist campaigns such as the “Kick it Out” and “Show Racism the Red Card” Campaigns.

If you would like to help with the Supporters Club’s equalities and diversity work please e-mail us at supporters@kingstonian.com.

New women’s officer role

Margaret McCormack has taken on a new role of Women’s Liaison Officer. This seems very timely in the light of the current Surrey FA initiative promoting female-friendly clubs and should also help support efforts to develop a Kingstonian Mind United women’s team.

Football Vs Homophobia 

The Supporters Club have supported the Football Club in backing this Surrey FA Football Vs Homophobia initiative through sponsoring the Wingate and Finchley match and have had special rainbow Ks flags made for the occasion. This match did not take place, but we will have the planned event at the same fixture next season as Wingate and Finchley are keen to support this initiative.

Please contact supporters@kingstonian.com for more information or to report any issues or concerns. We are very keen to hear from supporters who have ideas for how we can make our Club more inclusive.
