Active Sussex's commitment to racial equality
Actions drive change – this is the message at this week’s Race Equality Week.
This annual UK-wide movement is working hard to unite thousands of organisations and individuals to address the barriers to race equality and provide the opportunity to make it everyone’s business and show that actions drive change.
Active Sussex, one of 43 Active Partnerships, are committed to being an anti-racist organisation.
We are proactively working to tackle the racial inequalities that prevent or discourage people from leading active lives and enjoying the benefits of sport and physical activity, whether as participants, volunteers or by working in the sector.
We strongly value diversity and strive to ensure opportunities are available to all by working with partners to support those most inactive, helping build more resilient, inclusive communities.
You can read more about our diversity and inclusion action plan, our bid to develop a more diverse workforce, and our training in racial equality here.
You can also read more about our decision to prioritise a proportion of the Sport England Together Fund to support Black, Asian and ethnically diverse communities across Sussex with a particular focus on areas with higher numbers.
We hope that you will join together this week and, going forward, work with us to strive to ensure physical activity and sport is open and accessible to everybody.
