Tackling racism and racial inequality in community sport

North Yorkshire Sport is proud to be part of the Yorkshire and Humber Anti-Racism in Sport Group.

We want to stand with community sports organisations in a commitment to being anti-racist.

We want to challenge the racial inequalities that prevent or discourage people from leading active lives and enjoying the benefits of sport and physical activity as participants, volunteers, coaches, working with or cheering from the touchline.

We want organisations and individuals to recognise that we must do much more to address racism and racial inequalities within community sport and physical activity.

Each organisation, in agreeing to this commitment will have its own plan. Working alongside its local community and collectively we will:

  • Be open and responsible
  • Be strong allies
  • Create the change locally
  • Enable communities
  • Develop the workforce
  • Deliver inclusively
