Equity Statement

Meadowbank Gymnastics Club

EQUITY STATEMENT

Meadowbank Gymnastic Club is committed to the principles of equality of opportunity which underpins the Equity Policy adopted by Scottish Gymnastics. Equity is about recognising the barriers faced by people involved, or who wish to be involved in sport, and taking steps to address them. It is about changing the culture and structure of sport to ensure it values diversity and becomes equally accessible to everyone in society.

In adhering to these principles, the club ensures that equity is fully incorporated across all aspects of this club’s development and delivery.

We strive to promote the highest standards and:

• respect the rights, dignity and worth of all individuals and their right to self-determination, and will treat everyone equally within the context of their sport, regardless of age, ability, gender, race, ethnicity, religious belief, sexuality or social/economic status.

• are committed to everyone having the right to enjoy their sport in an environment free from threat of intimidation, harassment and abuse.

• ensure that our club members have a responsibility to oppose discriminatory behaviour and promote equality of opportunity.

• will deal with any incidence of discriminatory behaviour seriously, according to the Club’s disciplinary procedures.

This statement will be reviewed in accordance with any changes in legislation and guidance issued by Scottish Gymnastics, and in other circumstances on an annual basis.
