The FA Charter Standard
Launched in 2001, The FA Charter Standard Programme is The FA’s accreditation scheme for grassroots clubs and leagues. Its goal is to raise standards in grassroots football, support the development of clubs and leagues, recognising and rewarding them for their commitment and achievements.
The FA Charter Standard accreditation is awarded to clubs and leagues rigorously adjudged to be well-run and sustainable and which prioritise player protection, quality coaching and implementation of the Respect programme.
