The home country sports councils are united in their determination to ensure that sport and physical activity organisations fully embrace diversity and are truly inclusive for all, at every level.
As part of their ongoing support to partners, the sports councils commissioned a comprehensive review into the effectiveness of the Equality Standard for Sport in helping organisations drive purposeful change.
Feedback from partners highlighted the need for more help in identifying and dismantling the barriers to participation faced by different people as well as for guidance and practical support to create processes, structures and systems that will promote sustainable inclusion.
In response, the Moving to Inclusion Framework has been created. This new, flexible development tool is focused on 5 key pillars around leadership, culture, experience, relationships and communications. It will help organisations, regardless of their size or function, to challenge and improve their existing practices through a continuous cycle of self-reflection, planning, implementation and review.
The sports councils are confident that the new Framework will be welcomed and adopted by organisations that are committed to increasing the diversity and improving the positive experiences of those leading, governing, playing, coaching, officiating or volunteering in their sport.
