Following the conclusion of an independent, QC-led review looking into the culture and governance of Kick It Out, the organisation's Trustees have released a statement.

The statement reads: "The independent review looking into the culture and governance of Kick It Out has now been concluded.

"It has now been sent to the Charity Commission for their review. The report will not be made public as those who supported the review were guaranteed anonymity as part of the process.

"We would like to place on record our thanks to all those who contributed to the report and the independent QC for carrying out the review.

"This year will see the arrival of a new Chair at Kick It Out and the Trustees will support the organisation in putting in place recommendations from the report which include improving governance, support structures and policies for both employees and senior management to ensure all are able to do what Kick It Out does best: ridding football of injustice and prejudice."
