Equality and Diversity

Sport is an intrinsic part of many local communities, which contributes to the quality of life of many people and fosters community cohesion. It also has the ability to bring people together and to develop teamwork and co-operative skills and can provide a wide range of opportunities for all sections of the community to participate.

As a lead partnership agency and a provider of services for sport, Leap is committed to promoting equality and fairness in sport, valuing diversity and combating unfair treatment in sport.

The Leap Board is committed to ensuring that current and potential service users, employees (including volunteer helpers) or job applicants will not be discriminated against on the grounds of social circumstances or background, gender, race, colour, ethnic origin, disability, sexuality, age or religion. The principles of tolerance and understanding and respect for others are central to what we believe.

Leap have a passion for increasing participation and tackling inactivity and have developed an Equality Policy as a vehicle for broadening access and growing participation.
