Foundation Level

Foundation Level

The Foundation Level of the Equality Standard is the first step in a four stage process which intends to take an National Governing Body, or other similar sports organisation, through to a position where they better understand the demographic of their membership, areas where they can focus work to ensure that their sport is accessible to people who may not currently be engaging, and improving what they do generally so as to become more inclusive in their planning, delivery and reviewing processes. 


At this level, the principle is about making sure that you know what your organisation looks like; finding out what the demographic of your staff and board are, identifying a champion for equality within the Board, and ensuring that there is a high quality Equality Policy in place.


The purpose of this area within the DSW website is to provide resources which will support you including actions and information which will do a good job for disabled people.
