Sport in Mind believes that diversity, inclusion and must be embedded in the culture of our charity. It is what we do and how we do it that defines where we stand in relation to equal opportunities. We are committed to ensuring that everyone can thrive, both within our own team and the people whose lives we aim to improve.

We will work hard to ensure that we give everyone an equal chance. We know it is the right thing to do and we also know that having varied perspectives helps us to generate better ideas to serve our communities.

To meet these challenges we aim to develop a learning organisation where people feel free to raise issues of equality, diversity and inclusion. Training and learning from each other’s different viewpoints is highly valued. Monitoring and evaluation are prized tools and freedom to admit mistakes and celebrate successes is of central importance to Sport in Mind.

Sport in Mind is fundamentally opposed to all types of discrimination and seeks to ensure inclusion and equality in all that we do. Our charity uses the power of sport and physical activity to improve the lives of people experiencing mental health problems and as a result it lies within our very purpose that prejudice or exclusion of ANY nature will not be tolerated. As we develop as an organisation, we will continually strive to broaden the representation in our leadership and decision-making processes.  

We are committed to an inclusive workforce that fully represents the many different cultures, backgrounds and viewpoints of our service users, our partners, volunteers, contractors, employees and communities.
