The Scottish FA West Region works within over all One National Plan strategy for Scottish non-professional football with the aim to grow the game across the country in both scale and diversity, develop talent and provide social benefits – all with the ultimate goal of delivering Football for All.
Building on the successes of the 2005 Youth Action Plan and the 2011 One National Plan, the 2017-2020 One National Plan provides the framework for everyone within Scottish football to establish safe, friendly and nurturing environments to promote enjoyment of the game and foster healthy lifestyles.
It sets an ambitious target of enlisting ten percent of Scotland's population to become involved within Scottish Football in some form by 2026. To achieve this, it sets out four objectives, each with measurable targets:
One of the plan's biggest successes thus far has been the creation of the Quality Mark Awards, designed to serve as an opportunity to raise the standards of community clubs – to inspire them and help them to strive to better serve both their members and the wider community.
At the start of 2016 the Awards reached the milestone of 500 clubs, more than 40 of which are Legacy clubs, the highest Quality Mark level achievable. The Legacy award is designed to inspire clubs to be more than just football clubs, but to use the game as a platform to spur positive social change within their local community.
Some of the additional successes of the previous plans have included the establishment of football regions within Scotland, each with their own designated Regional Manager and staff; the creation of the National Player Pathway; and the appointment of both Scottish FA Equality Officers and Girls and Womens Officers.
