Kick It Out is running a number of consultation evenings around the country to help groups and individuals find out more about their Mentoring and Leadership Project.
The events are aimed at local grassroots clubs and community organisations looking to develop the people they are working with or play a bigger role in the football industry.
The Mentoring and Leadership Project has been developed by Kick It Out - football's inclusion and equality campaign - in partnership with the Equalities and Human Rights Commission to address the under-representation of diverse communities in the football industry.
The first event takes place in Birmingham this evening, with the second and third events scheduled for Newcastle and Bristol over the week ahead. Full details are as follows:
