Statement of Intent
Active Derbyshire wishes to act as an exemplar for equality and diversity within its sphere of influence. In doing so, Active Derbyshire commits to promoting good equitable practice within the organisation and with partners.
Active Derbyshire will consult with key organisations involved with equality in sport to ensure that its services and programmes are based on current research and good practice.
Active Derbyshire will take positive action to deliver services and programmes that are appropriate and accessible to every individual in Derbyshire and DerbyCity.
Active Derbyshire will ensure that its safeguarding policy, procedures, guidance and training help staff recognise the additional vulnerability of some young people and the extra barriers they face to getting help, because of their race, economic status, gender, age, religion, disability or sexual orientation.
Active Derbyshire will ensure that responsibility and accountability for equality is placed firmly at the most senior level within the organisation (the Director of Active Derbyshire) and delivery is the responsibility of all employees, volunteers and partners.
Active Derbyshire will deliver on this policy by building equality and diversity into all aspects of its work. All reasonable steps will be taken to ensure that employees, volunteers and partner organisations are committed to this policy.
Active Derbyshire will ensure that no job applicant, employee, volunteer, partner, participant, carer or spectator at a Active Derbyshire event, receives less favourable treatment on the grounds of race, economic status, gender, age, religion, disability or sexual orientation.
Active Derbyshire will take positive action through advocacy, training and mentoring to achieve a workforce and a governance structure that is representative of the population in the County and Derby.
Active Derbyshire will ensure that its employees, volunteers, partners, participants, carers and spectators are able to conduct their Active Derbyshire related activities free from harassment or intimidation.
The Sports Equality Policy sets out how Active Derbyshire is trying to ensure sport under its remit becomes equally accessible to all members of society regardless of their race, economic status, gender, age, religion, disability, or sexual orientation (REGARDS).
