BAME

YST Inclusion - BAME
This section sets out our commitment to tackling racial injustice and provides tips and resources to support you in making PE and school sport more inclusive for Black, Asian and Minority Ethnic (BAME) children and young people.

We care passionately about children's futures and are determined to do more to understand and help tackle racism, discrimination and prejudice that Black, Asian and Minority Ethnic (BAME) people face.

The COVID-19 pandemic and the killing of George Floyd in Minneapolis served as a stark reminder that the world is not a level playing field.

Equality, diversity and inclusion sit at the very heart of our mission and every aspect of our work, but there is more that we can and must do to help tackle racism through our work in sport and education.

Systemic change is needed to address the underlying causes of inequalities in our society and sport, and it is clear that this will only be achieved by people and organisations working together. We will continue to collaborate with and learn from organisations with expertise in this area like Sporting Equals and the BAME PE Network, working together to maximise our resources and impact.

As a charity we passionately believe in the power of sport to give young people a voice and a place to belong. We will work with young people from BAME backgrounds to help them develop solutions. It is important that voices of all young people are heard, especially from under-represented groups, and we will continue to work with leaders both in sport and education to achieve this. 

Leadership in sport, education and society must become more diverse and representative. We have set out how we will work to achieve this at all levels within our organisation and will support others to do so.

We know our action is needed more than words. We commit to challenge ourselves to effectively play our part in addressing race equality and to be held accountable for our progress.
