Equality and Diversity Statement

British Blind Sport Equality and Diversity Statement

We are working hard to create a culture that celebrates diversity and welcomes difference; a place where everyone’s rights and dignity are respected.

We can only do this by ensuring that the people who work for us are the best they can be irrespective of age, gender, sexuality, ethnicity, disability, marital status, religion or belief.

We are striving to provide a work and social environment free from discrimination, prejudice, intimidation, and all forms of harassment and bullying. We want to achieve this for all our staff, volunteers and for our members, also in their own communities.

What matters to us is that we have talented, enthusiastic and experienced professionals working with us who can help deliver our vision, of connecting people with sight loss with a wide variety of sports.

Our day-to-day activity is supported by our Diversity Action Plan, detailing our goals and outcomes.  We see this as a valuable tool and are committed to moving the plan objectives forward, the progress will be accessed annually and the findings shared.

By demonstrating our commitment to equality and diversity through our day-to-day actions, we value the ideas and contributions from everybody and welcome and support difference. Our aim is to make sure that equality, diversity and inclusion run through everything we do as an employer.
