'Sport For All' Highlights Deep-rooted Inequalities in Sport
People from black and minority ethnic backgrounds are far less likely to be physically active.
The deep-rooted inequalities that mean people from Black, Asian and minority ethnic (BAME) backgrounds are far less likely to be physically active have been laid bare in a new report.
‘Sport for all – why ethnicity and culture matters in sport and physical activity’, which we published yesterday, is the most comprehensive ever picture of how people from BAME communities are taking part in sport and physical activity.
The report considers:
- Overall levels of activity and the significant differences between different ethnic groups
- The types of activities undertaken by adults and children from different ethnic backgrounds
- The impact of overlaying multiple demographic characteristics upon activity levels.
