who we are

equitysport is a registered international equality-in-sport charity (1189559) based in the UK. We exist to advance equality, promote diversity and extend equal opportunities in and through global sport.

equitysport are values-led

In all that we do, we are led by our values. At the core of our mission is the inherent belief that all people are born equal in status and in rights. Through global sport, we believe that the principles of equality, diversity and equal opportunity can be realised universally, not as some sort of ethereal aspiration, but as an everyday reality.

We work to promote, amplify, uphold and strengthen support for shared values across global sport. We seek to influence and help shape the powerful deep narratives embedded within the overarching culture of sport to re-imagine what is possible and to catalyse and embed real change over the long-term. 

equitysport are human-first

We believe in the potential of people, not things. In effect this means our focus is on developing people's abilities and giving them a chance to use them in and through sport.

Our work is centred around giving people more freedom and choice to access and participate in sport in ways that they value. We seek to help create a global ecosystem that provides an environment for all people, individually and collectively, to develop to their full potential and fully express their talents.

equitysport are collaborative

We recognise that changing global sport takes more than everything one organisation knows and has the capacity to deliver, but not more than what we know and can deliver together. We understand that disjointed, unilateral action will fail to achieve the kind of transformational impact we aspire to.

We reject self-interest in favour of common-interest; through collaboration, partnership and solidarity with our partners and friends around the world, we strive to harness collective influence and power within the equality-in-sport 'movement' to empower individuals, groups and organisations to work better and more effectively together.  

equitysport are locally driven

We do not seek to represent or speak on behalf of any particular group or community within global sport. Instead, we represent a framework of values and principles, that if applied universally, can guarantee and protect equality for all, no matter who you are, where you come from or what your background is. 

By it's very nature, some of our work centres on communities and groups around the world who have often been structurally excluded, marginalised or under-served. We work in solidarity with those communities not for them or instead of them. Our programmes are developed to prioritise the support of local ideas, local people and local organisations over outside intervention or control.
