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.

Active Devon aims to increase and widen participation for everyone in physical activity and sport.

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.

You can download Active Devon’s Equality Policy below.  It 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.
