A bit about Nathan: 

Nathan Mattick is a Level 7 Referee from Gloucestershire. Nathan was born with a condition called Cerebral Palsy which means he has to rely on using a powered wheelchair to help him move around. He began his refereeing journey in 2013 and is the first wheelchair-using referee in the UK. He became a member of the Gloucestershire FA Youth Council in 2016 before leaving in 2017. Soon after, Nathan joined the RA as a member. In 2019, Nathan was asked to support the Media team before becoming an Honorary Officer. In 2021, Nathan was successful in his application to the RA Board of Management where he looks after the digital content for the RA.

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.
