Kent Sport - A club for everyone (new)

This workshop is a great starting point and we hope it helps clubs to take away actions that will help them to become more welcoming, friendly, accessible and inclusive which will benefit everyone. This approach not only helps groups of people who find it hard to engage with sports clubs, but also helps clubs generally to attract and retain more participants and volunteers.

Kent Sport - A club for everyone (new)

All the data shows us that stubborn inequalities exist in sport, and certain groups of people face more barriers than others to participate.

We know that the huge disruption of 2020 has further reinforced or exacerbated these inequalities, particularly for people with disabilities or long term health conditions, people from lower socio economic groups and people from ethnically diverse communities.

This workshop is a great starting point and we hope it helps clubs to take away actions that will help them to become more welcoming, friendly, accessible and inclusive which will benefit everyone. This approach not only helps groups of people who find it hard to engage with sports clubs, but also helps clubs generally to attract and retain more participants and volunteers.
