Tackle Racism and Racial Inequality in Sport update

In September 2020, UK Sport, Sport England, sportscotland, Sport Wales and Sport Northern Ireland came together to set out to Tackle Racism and Racial Inequality in Sport with the collective ambition to have a sporting system which is truly inclusive and properly reflective of UK society.

As part of the first phase of this initiative, the Sports Councils commissioned two pieces of work – a data gathering and analysis project led by the Sport Industry Research Centre at Sheffield Hallam University and a lived experiences project led by AKD Solutions.

Both pieces of work have now concluded, and the five Sports Councils have agreed some initial overarching commitments that all five organisations will work on together ensuring that they are aligned to their individual strategies. These relate to people; representation; investment, systems and insights.
