The Community Engagement Project:
The Community Engagement model works to present the current standing of an organisation in inclusivity in their locality, focussing on the key equality groups and protected characteristics as referenced in Equality Act 2010. It also supports an organisation's key drivers (e.g. commercial opportunities and engaging untapped markets, risk management, brand reputation, external relations and employee relations).
The project can result in improving the organisation's day to day practices and develop business opportunities in a constantly changing demographic environment. There are five key areas of work: Communications, Policy Review, Staff Consultation, Stakeholder Consultation and Training Needs Analysis:
External communications - builds initial awareness of the project and partnership to key stakeholders (including local communities and agencies) on the organisation's commitment to diversity, thus creating credibility and PR opportunities.
Finally Sporting Equals would develop a report with recommendations to support commercial, PR and engagement opportunities.

The Making Equals project works to engage and attract diverse young people through sport, break down barriers and empower them to make a difference locally.
Sporting Equals host Active Sport Zones at the large cultural events throughout the country. The Active Sports Zones allow people to get engaged with sporting activities giving them an opportunity to try something new and connecting them up to local opportunities.
We encourage the sports sector to take action in light of new opportunities, changing demographics, utilising talent and attracting talented individuals from under-represented groups.
