Inclusion & Diversity

We’re committed to working proactively to ensure access to sport and physical activity for anyone, regardless of individual circumstance or background.

Our greatest inequality in the Black Country is deprivation and our residents face complex and multiple disadvantages.

We need to further understand and support our residents to encourage physical activity engagement. Understanding our local place sits at the heart of our inclusion approach and supports our ambitions to develop meaningful relationships with a broader range of partners who understand and advocate for our communities needs and share our agenda to provide equality of opportunity for all.
