Preliminary Level

Preliminary Level

The Prelimiary Level of the Equality Standard is the step after the Foundation level, and builds on the learning and knowledge which the NGB or similar sports organisation has gained from their initial involvement with the process. 


At this level, the principle is about making sure that you know what your organisation looks like beyond just the core staff, so extends this understanding to the membership, and then starts to identify and implement actions which will address some of the areas for improvement in provision and thinking.  This includes finding out what the demographic of your broader membership is, creating an Equality Action plan based on these findings, and highlighting how a programme of training, support and awareness-raising needs to be established and what this will look like on an annual basis


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.
