Our board members and employees strongly believe that we should be operating to the highest standards of corporate governance, equality and transparency.
This is not about ticking boxes for the sake of it, but is a genuine commitment to do the right thing. As part of this, and as a minimum, we will adhere to Sport England’s highest tier of the Code for Sports Governance along with achieving the relevant Safeguarding, Equity and Quality Standards, such as Quest.
At the heart of this is our commitment to equality and diversity that is reflected in the Board diversity policy.
We recognise and embrace the benefits of having a diverse Board, and see increasing diversity at Board level as an essential element to achieve our stated aims and objectives. A truly diverse Board will include and make good use of differences in the skills, experience, background, race, gender and other qualities of Trustees. As a reflection of this commitment we will achieve and maintain a minimum of 30% of either gender.
These differences will be considered in determining the makeup of the Board and be balanced appropriately whenever possible. All Board appointments are made on merit, in the context of the skills and experience required to fulfil its responsibilities.
