Six-month update on progress following race in sport review
Earlier this year we, UK Sport and home nations sports councils published the findings and recommendations following a review of racism and racial inequality in sport, now we're issuing an update on progress.
Following the publication of the Tackling Racism and Racial Inequality in Sport (TRARIIS) review, earlier this year, we, UK Sport and the other home nations sports councils have issued a six-month update.
The chief executives of each of the councils have issued the following joint statement:
In June, the five sports councils responsible for funding sport and physical activity across the UK, published the outcomes of our joint review into TRARIIS.
The review’s findings were based on an extensive analysis of publicly available data on race and ethnicity in sport, as well as research into the lived experiences of more than 300 people.
They made clear that racism and racial inequalities exist in sport in the UK and have resulted in ethnically diverse communities and individuals being consistently disadvantaged, discriminated against, and excluded from sport and physical activity.
In response to these findings, we made clear our determination to learn from the review and do everything in our power to bring about transformational change to stamp out racism in sport; creating a sporting system that is truly inclusive and representative of UK society.
We also committed to work with relevant groups or communities and co-create solutions to deliver real, lasting change and earn their trust.
We agreed to work together on five overarching commitments, ensuring these are aligned to our individual strategies and remits, and developing tangible and transparent action plans.
These commitments relate to People; Representation; Investment; Systems; and Insights.
