Level Playing Field have appointed a new Development Officer

Level Playing Field (LPF) is delighted to announce the appointment of Daniel Townley as our new Development Officer.

Daniel has been involved both in charity work and training for many years. He previously worked for a training consultancy firm, helping to develop training materials relating to Continuous Improvement. He also worked part-time as a local church leader, strengthening his firm belief that everyone should be treated with value and dignity.

As a part of the role, Daniel will be liaising with clubs across the Championship and League One, helping to provide a better matchday experience for disabled supporters throughout the English Football League. He will also be delivering a wide range of training to staff and volunteers, including Stewards Training and Disability Inclusion & Etiquette Training.

This is an integral part of Level Playing Field’s work, ensuring that we work together with the clubs to provide an equality of matchday experience for all supporters that is of the highest quality.

Ruth Hopkins, General Manager and Head of Access and Development, said: “We are very excited to welcome Daniel to the team. He brings a wealth of experience delivering training sessions and this is such an important part of our work as we continue to raise awareness and give front line staff and stewards the skills and confidence to communicate with disabled sports fans.”

Daniel is passionate about inclusion – ensuring that all areas of life are open and accessible to all. His main area of work will be partnering with football clubs in the Championship and League One to help them make this a reality at their clubs.
