Equality, Diversity and Inclusion

The BAC takes seriously its role in recognising and removing any barriers faced by people involved or wanting to be involved in sport, in any capacity, to ensure the culture of sport is improved to one that values diversity and enables the full involvement of disadvantaged groups in every aspect of sport.

We want to empower all of our members, and to celebrate both all of our differences and all that we share. As such, the BAC takes a proactive approach in leading and influencing a fair, equitable, and ethical world-class sporting system in the UK.
