Sport England and UK Sport: Joint Statement on Race in Sport Review

Last year Sport England and the other home sports councils began a review into racism and racial inequality in sport.

As they publish the findings, they’ve issues a joint statement with UK Sport.

The findings make clear that racism and racial inequalities still exist within sport in the UK and that there are longstanding issues, which have resulted in ethnically diverse communities being consistently disadvantaged. 

The review also highlighted the detrimental impact this has had on individuals, leading to mistrust and exclusion, and makes clear areas where we must see change.
