Goal 2 - Ensuring football is inclusive to ethnic minority groups
Outcome – We will embrace all people irrespective of their race or ethnicity

Goal 3 - Increasing opportunities in football for those with a disability
Outcome – There will be a wider offering that caters for additional ages and abilities 

Goal 4 - Ensuring cost is not a barrier in football

Goal 5 - Promoting the diversity in Jersey football
Outcome - We will celebrate our diversity and use it to enhance our game

Goal 6 - Effective engagement and communications that promote Football for All
