Complaints and Compliance
The Club regards all forms of discriminatory behaviour, including (but not limited to) behaviour described is this statement as unacceptable, and is concerned to ensure that individuals feel able to raise any bona fide grievance or complaint related to such behaviour without fear of being penalised for doing so. Appropriate disciplinary action will be taken against any employee, member or volunteer, spectator or fan who is found, after a full investigation, to have violated the Equality Policy.

Positive Action and Training
Club Staff undertake regular training in Equality, Diversity & Inclusion.
The Club is committed to equality, inclusion, and anti-discrimination as part of The Football League’s Code of Practice. The Club will commit to a programme of raising awareness and educating, investigating concerns, and applying relevant and proportionate sanctions, campaigning, widening diversity and representation and promoting diverse role models, which we believe are all key actions to promote inclusion and eradicate discrimination within football.
This Equality Policy will be reviewed and updated, if required, on an annual basis.
