North Riding FA is delighted to announce that the association has been successful in gaining the foundation level of the Equality Standard for Sport from The FA. 
The National Standard for Equality is a nationally-recognized framework that assists County Football Associations with embedding equality at the highest level of their organisation, and communicating and sharing that commitment with its staff and partners.
