We believe that sporting opportunities should be open to all and we are committed to:

  • Developing a culture that enables and values the full involvement of all, embedding and promoting the principles of equality, through the delivery of inclusive, high quality sport
  • Creating an environment in which all have equal opportunities to engage in high quality sport, whether as participants; competitors; volunteers; officials or administrators
  • Responding to the diverse needs, capabilities and preferences of all, by ensuring appropriate levels of challenge
  • Overcoming potential barriers for those individuals and groups currently under-represented as participants.
