FA Guidelines for Referee Suspensions
In 1914, as the Referees’ union set up a benevolent fund for members of the union who were fighting in World War 1, the union encouraged members who remained at home to give-up 50% of their match fee. 
The fund is now over a hundred years old and today the fund is active in helping members their hour of need, providing financial support to members and their families.
If you need urgent help, a simple application form can found in the member's area and we will submit to the trustees.

Our Partnerships

Partnerships are often formed between individuals, agencies or organisations with a shared interest to address specific issues. Our evidence reveals that our members young and old often require mental, emotional, financial, medical help, support and guidance. The Referees’ Association champion the work of those agencies that provide this support in times of need. Should you require support please contact the relevant agency below or the RA Head Office.
