Adult Charter Standard

Adult Charter Standard is an FA accreditation open to all adult football clubs with one or more teams 

Charter Standard can help sustain clubs as well as grow them, and also gives clubs access to benefits to help their club moving forwards. Becoming Charter Standard also offers clubs an opportunity to apply for funding they would not have been able to access before. 

"2 out of 3 Clubs have said that becoming Charter Standard accredited has raised overall standards of their football club"
