LGBT funding for grassroots football

We're waiting for Ben Church to read a recent response and update the status.

Dear Department for Culture, Media and Sport,

I am writing to you under the Freedom of Information Act 2000.

Can you please provide me with the relevant funding given to tackle discrimination in grass-roots football.

I want a breakdown of how much funding went where to tackle racism, homophobia and sexism.

Yours faithfully,

Ben Church

I consider that your requests can be aggregated as the Regulations provide

your request.  

 

299845- You may wish to contact the National Governing Body (NGB) for
