Posted 30th October 2023

Sport Leeds invites local grassroots sport clubs from across the region to join in Tackling Racism in Sport and create plans to create a inclusive and safe sporting environment for all.

Tuesday, 21 November 2023, 6-7pm

Guest speakers include:

  • Nigel Harrison, CEO of Yorkshire Sport Foundation
  • Claire Blue and Wan Abdullah from Holbeck Moor FC
  • Becca Gallagher, Development Manager – Sport at Yorkshire Sport Foundation

All clubs and community organisations from across South Yorkshire and West Yorkshire are invited to take part in this session.

The goal is to address racial inequalities that hinder people from engaging in sport and physical activity, whether as participants, volunteers, coaches, or spectators.

Clubs are asked to read about the commitment here and join over 100 organisations who have signed the pledge and put a plan in place. The commitment was created by the Yorkshire and Humber Anti-Racism in Sport Group which is made up from organisations that came together to make a difference.
