Nottinghamshire Football Association announces membership of the Employers’ Initiative on Domestic Abuse
Nottinghamshire Football Association is delighted to announce their membership of the Employers’ Initiative on Domestic Abuse (EIDA), a leading business network that supports employers to take action on domestic abuse.
EIDA works with employers to help them implement effective internal policies on domestic abuse, as well as providing awareness and signposting to up to date resources.
As the governing body for football across the county, Nottinghamshire FA is committed to raising awareness of the terrible impact of domestic abuse, to supporting our employees affected by domestic abuse, as well as to encouraging other employers to take action.
Susan Bright, CEO of The Employer’s Initiative on Domestic Abuse, added:
“We are delighted to welcome the Nottinghamshire FA team to our network. The important role that employers can play in tackling domestic abuse has become even more apparent during the Covid pandemic. The commitment from employers in supporting their own employees whilst also inspiring other employers to do the same will help us to achieve our vision of every UK employer taking action on domestic abuse.”
Through awareness generation, building relationships and the sharing of best practice, Nottinghamshire FA and EIDA are hoping to support a systematic change to the way domestic abuse is handled. We are proud to be a part of this initiative as we look to build on our partnership with local charity, Broxtowe Women's Project.
