Coventry Solihull & Warwickshire Sports Partnership is committed to working proactively to ensure access to sport and physical activity across the partnership for anyone, regardless of individual circumstance or background.
We will address barriers to participation and promote positive actions to ensure under-represented communities have the opportunity to participate in their chosen activities. In order to achieve this we will produce and implement an Equality Action Plan with staff and partners.
We recognise the diversity of our community and accept that we have to be more pro-active and put additional resources into engaging with individuals and groups who have not traditionally accessed our services.
The CSW Sport Executive Board has recognised the need to champion equality with key partners and have endorsed this policy in November 2006. The Lead Officer for CSW Sport is Tracy Murphy however it is recognised that this is a co-ordination role and that all partners are aware and engaged in the delivery of the Equality Action Plan.
The CSW Sport aims to achieve both the Foundation Level of The Equality Standard – A Framework for Sport by April 2007 and the Preliminary Level by September 2007. The target dates to achieve the Intermediate and Advanced levels are still to be confirmed.
