This week marks the final week of our Return to the Table campaign across the summer which aimed at encouraging players back to the sport and with confidence, motivation and passion.
The focus this week is Diversity and Inclusion, ahead of our Diversity and Inclusion Strategy launch next week and we’ve put together a host of FREE resources for you to access.
LGBTQ+ resources: A set of top tips and helpful resources to support you in including LGBTQ+ children and young people.
SEND resources: A set of top tips and helpful resources to support you in including children and young people with Special Educational Needs and Disabilities (SEND).
SUPPORTING GIRLS WITH AUTISM: Developed by the Youth Sport Trust Lead Inclusion School network, Supporting girls with Autism is a digital, audio and practical toolkit that builds upon knowledge of girls with autism spectrum conditions (ASC) and some of the key considerations for making PE and sport inclusive to all.
Reaching more people through inclusive and accessible communications
Disability Matters is an innovative suite of free resources to support those who work, volunteer or engage with disabled children and young people (from 0 to 25 years) and their families. It seeks to address the barriers that make society disabling. These challenges are faced by those with either physical and/or intellectual disabilities. Disability Matters is a suite of free online e-learning resources for everyone who comes into contact with disabled children and young people, whether this be through paid work or in a voluntary or charitable capacity. This could be as a doctor, teacher or police officer or equally as school bus driver, football or swimming coach or through involvement with a community group such as Brownies, Guides or Scouts.
Including resources on Non-Binary People, Sport and Physical Activity.
Sport England’s report, ‘Sport for all – why ethnicity and culture matters in sport and physical activity’, is the most comprehensive ever picture of how people from Black, Asian and minority ethnic communities are taking part in sport and physical activity.
