Active Devon’s Commitment to Inclusion & Equality

Physical activity and sport help to bring people and communities together and can be an instrument for change and inclusion. Active Devon recognises the power and influence of physical activity and sport to change lives for the better.  Everyone should have access to the potential benefits of physical activity and sport, which is why equality, inclusion and widening access are of critical importance for Active Devon. We aim to increase and widen participation for everyone in physical activity and sport.

Each year we support the running of the Ability School Games supporting inclusivity with competitive sports as well as supporting local and national campaigns such as Sport England’s We Are Undefeatable and the Activity Alliance’s  Who Says

Active Devon’s Commitment Through Leadership

Active Devon is also fully committed to promoting diversity in its Board Membership and Leadership.

Whilst we must ensure that the Board and Leadership is fully equipped with the skills, knowledge and experience required we are committed to maintaining gender parity on the Board and achieving greater diversity of contribution into our decision making.

The Active Devon’s Equality Policy  represents our commitment to implement The Equality Standard: A Framework for Sport and equality legislation and provides the minimum standards which can be expected from Active Devon.

Inclusivity in sport is important and ensures that your club is welcoming to everyone, regardless of race, age, religion, gender or sexual orientation
