The Football Association, through its Charter Standard scheme, seeks to establish, reward and encourage good practice at grass roots levels so that parents and children can demand a minimum standard of provision from clubs and leagues.
The London FA works with, affiliated leagues and clubs all round the county to award Charter Standards to well organised recipients. 
The Charter Standard for Clubs, was launched on 1 February 2001 by Harry and Jamie Redknapp. 
 The Charter Standard aims to...
