Why become an Inclusive Sport member?

Inclusive Sport is the only organisation offering diversity and inclusion membership to the sport and physical activity sector. Inclusive Sport members have access to consultancy, training, thought leadership, webinars and resources that support them to make inclusion an everyday reality. 

You might be at the beginning of your inclusion journey or a highly experienced I&D professional – our approach is to support you whatever stage you are at. We will tailor our expert support and knowledge to provide you with confidence and practical advice.

You will have a dedicated account manager with experience in the sport and physical activity sector. Your account manager will get to know you, so they can respond dynamically to your needs and help you to maximise the value of your membership. You will have the opportunity for monthly account manager meetings so you can review progress and ensure you’re up to date with our latest resources and webinars.

The importance of Inclusion in Sport

Inclusion in Sport is crucial in so many ways. Like everywhere else, Sport needs to be a safe place for all individuals, and our Inclusive Sport team is helping make that happen.

Diversity in sport is important not only for sportspeople, trainers, teams, and communities but also for sport fans looking for representation.

By offering fresh approaches and support, we are transforming how communities, teams and the industry are tackling inclusion in sport.
