Making english sport inclusive: Equity guidelines for governing bodies

E-mail Print

Sport plays a major role in promoting the inclusion of all groups in society. Governing bodies of sport have a big part to play in this social inclusion because of their role in developing sport at all levels of participation and organisation.


However, inequalities have traditionally existed within sport. Many examples can be found of inequality in relation to gender, race and disability. They are not necessarily deliberate, and often have a historical or cultural background. These inequalities have now been recognised and governing bodies are working hard to overcome them. Sport England is committed to supporting governing bodies in their quest to overcome inequality in sport.
