Fans for Diversity has a simple aim – to celebrate diversity among football fans and ensure that all fans can feel safe and welcome at football. Football is the world’s greatest game and it is for everyone, regardless of age, disability, gender, race, faith, sexual orientation or any other feature.
Since its launch in 2014 Fans for Diversity, run by the Football Supporters’ Federation and Kick It Out, has delivered on that aim with a huge array of activities which have inspired participation from communities who might not otherwise have got involved with the beautiful game.
An example we’re especially proud of within that is the explosion of LGBT-led supporter organisations in recent years. Fans for Diversity was instrumental in the creation of Pride in Football, the umbrella network for LGBT fan groups. There are now 30+ LGBT groups across the Premier League and EFL which the campaign supports.
We support disabled fans, a good example of that being September 2017’s Southampton’s Accessibility Day organised by Southampton Disability Supporters Association and supported by Fans for Diversity. The event provided over a 1000 disabled and nondisabled fans the opportunity to mix, see behind-the-scenes and meet club ambassadors
But that’s not all Fans for Diversity is about. The initiative has also worked with West Ham-supporting senior citizens thanks to Sporting Memories and Any Old Irons, new female fan groups such as Lady Imps, and a whole host of organisations via our Fans for Diversity hub at Leyton Orient’s Brisbane Road. Visitors to The Hub include junior O’s supporters, local hospices, Dementia Friends, Cancer Research UK, Disability Coordination Disorder, White Ribbon Campaign, Headway East (brain trauma centre), ELHAP (children with disabilities) and many more

Air Spectrum Environmental has two sister companies Spectrum Environmental Support (SES) and OdourLab. Spectrum Environmental Support provide expert advice in industrial odour, dust and air emissions consultancy across a range of industries including: water and waste management, Local Authorities and process industries such as those operating odorous or dusty plants including effluent treatment, construction, engineering and manufacturing.
Spectrum Environmental Support’s (SES) technical services, specialist products, and practical capabilities are focused to response to customer demands for effective support and solutions which will properly manage a comprehensive range of their industrial odour and dust issues, and in particular to ensure strict compliance with environmental legislation, especially where there are demands for: –
Assessing reporting and managing the causes and effects of environmental issues relating to odour, dust and airborne pollution
Urgent remedial and/or routine works to address sites where a varied range of odour and dust problems are identified
Introductions of specialist new control equipment including management packages
Monitoring and modifying existing systems and equipment to bring sites into line with Environmental Permitting Regulations (EPR) and other requirements e.g. Local Authority Pollution Controls (LAPC)
Odour and other airborne pollution can arise from various sources such as waste, water treatment, restaurants, sewerage works, landfill, petro-chemical, industrial processes, agriculture and food manufacture. Any process which handles odourous material can cause odour pollution, and problems can occur at all stages of a business process. Planning and permit applications that lack sufficient impact assessments can be rejected; neighbourhood complaints can be troublesome, gaining unwanted media coverage, and in worse case scenarios sites can be prosecuted, receiving hefty fines for odour problems.
Dust suppression and control is a critical factor when it comes to preventing the exposure to dust of the public and of employees. Dust control measures usually involve a combination of equipment and methods of working to reduce exposure. The right combination is crucial. No measures, however practical, can work unless they are used properly. SES consultants will assess and advise on dust monitoring equipment and dust suppression techniques for a range of industries including dust suppression for construction, quarries and mines, demolition and aggregates, sports arenas, tracks and equestrian facilities.
Spectrum Environmental Support can help in all odour, dust and associated emissions related cases. With the correct precautions, abatement and management the release of pollutants can be contained and the impact effects limited.
The SES team will provide odour and dust consultancy and management including:
Site odour impact assessment (including on-going site monitoring)
Site sampling using structured collection, handling and transport protocols
In-house laboratory analysis via their UKAS Accredited Laboratory
Dispersion modelling using ADMS 5 software
Detailed Reporting and recommendations
Monitoring Equipment supply and installation
Monitoring Equipment servicing and maintenance
Provision of independent and accurate advice about appropriate abatement and control measures
Bespoke and specific training
