'Terriers Together' Initiative - Huddersfield Town Football Club
The 'Terriers Together' initiative was established to demonstrate a zero-tolerance approach to discrimination. 'Terriers Together' reflects the many ways in which Huddersfield Town Football Club holds diversity and inclusion at the heart of the organisation. For example, their wristband scheme, which enables individuals with a disability or additional needs to discretely alert match day stewards that they may need assistance.
