Inclusion and Anti-Discrimination Statement of Commitment
Ardrossan Community Sports Hub is a diverse organisation that values difference and recognises that people with different backgrounds, skills, attitudes and experiences bring fresh ideas and perceptions. Ardrossan Community Sports Hub takes great care to treat each individual as a person in their own right, with equal rights and responsibilities to any other individual, whether they are an adult or a child. We are committed to providing equality of opportunity and anti-discriminatory practice for all officials, staff, fans, and community members, partners and other stakeholders according to their individual needs.
Discrimination on the grounds of sex, age, race, religion or belief, marriage or civil partnership, disability, sexual orientation, gender reassignment, pregnancy or maternity, ethnic or national origin or political belief has no place within the Club.
All members of staff at Ardrossan Community Sports Hub are committed to implementing this policy and to promoting its aims within the wider communities in which we operate. Ardrossan Community Sports Hub is committed to a programme of action to make this policy fully effective.
The board of Trustees will hold overall responsibility for the co-ordination and implementation of Equality Policy development and for identifying new priorities through regular assessment reviews. Ardrossan Community Sports Hub will assess the impact of existing policies, practices and procedures at regular intervals, to evaluate the effectiveness and success of our activities.
Through regular consultation with all our partners, monitoring and review process, equality will be mainstreamed into our wider business strategy.
Ardrossan Community Sports Hub is committed to providing each employee, potential employee, customer and service-users equality of opportunity across all areas of the club’s operation.
Ardrossan Community Sports Hub will ensure that equality practices are integral to every process and create an inclusive and positive environment for all.
Should you encounter any form of discrimination when on our premises or taking part in any activity we arrange, please could you report it to us with as much information as possible. You can report incidents to the club by sending us an email to firstname.lastname@example.org
With your help, we can help beat discrimination.
“… a healthy Ardrossan where people are more active more often – where physical activity and sport helps bring about positive benefits for individuals and our community. Where people will have a positive sense of self- worth and where ‘sport for all’ is a reality”
“to create a community Sports Hub, using physical activity and sport as a means of improving individual health, both physical and mental, and creating a sense of well being and resilience in our community. By creating a successful hub in partnership with other community groups, we will promote a civic pride in our community realising our vision for the town and its environs.”
We have two sets of values. The first is how we will ‘do business’. These descriptors identify our corporate culture, how we will work with external partners and other organisations.
We are accountable
We operate fairly
We operate with integrity
The second set of values reflects how we want the local community to view the service that we will provide. How they feel about taking part in our activities.
We have fun
We are nurtured
We are inclusive
We are supported
We feel safe
We are encouraged to be the best we can be
In order to achieve our Vision, we have four key objectives:
To promote excellent physical and mental health through participation in person-centred sport and physical activity.
To promote a strong, resilient, sustainable and supportive community which has pride in its achievements.
To develop skills for life, learning and work through volunteering and employment.
To improve access to sport and physical activities facilities and environments.
