About us

Active Lincolnshire is committed to providing opportunities for everyone in Lincolnshire to be active every day. We work with partners to address inequalities and inactivity, responding to the needs of people and places.

What we do

As advocates for the positive power that physical activity has on everyone’s lives, we work in partnership to improve understanding, influence change, and tackle the challenge of inactivity.

Knowledge Hub

Our Knowledge Hub is the core of our website. Here you’ll find our guidance, advice, insight and support in all areas of physical activity and sport.

Equality, diversity & inclusion

  • Statement of intent

    Our statement of intent

    Active Lincolnshire is fully committed to embedding equality, diversity and inclusion across our organisation. In our working practices, policies and behaviours, inclusion will be at the centre of all that we do and we will take a zero-tolerance approach to any form of discrimination. We recognise it is our role to advocate these principles in the services we deliver, across the sport and physical activity sector workforce and through our partnerships.

    Our vision is to remove the inequalities that exist in sport and physical activity by working with our partners to:

    • Remove the barriers that prevent or restrict individuals from accessing physical activity and sport
    • Ensure no individual suffers any detriment, direct or indirect discrimination, harassment, victimisation or bullying
    • Enable everyone to be treated in such a way that the outcome for each person can be the same

    We will treat everyone with respect, integrity and dignity. We will use insight and listen actively to the people we are working to support.

    Active Lincolnshire is committed to developing a diverse team and Board of Trustees, not limited to age, sex, race, religion or belief, sexual orientation, ability or disability. All of our team will undergo equality, diversity and inclusivity training and development and we will advocate that our partners do the same. We will seek to provide representation by recruiting and engaging with people with the protected characteristics, or with relevant lived experience.

    We strive for continuous improvement in our approach to equality, and recognise that we will always need to build on our education, awareness and commitment to ensuring our organisation and the services we provide are available and accessible to everyone without discrimination of any form.

    We will ensure that businesses, organisation and partners in our wider supply chain are compliant and will not work with suppliers or provide grants to any organisation that is not. We will terminate any contracts, partnerships or grant funding with organisations, charities and partners who show any form of discrimination in their practice.

    We recognise our legal obligations and abide by the regulations of the Equality Act 2010.

    Our equality, diversity and inclusion policy

    Active Lincolnshire is fully committed to embedding and promoting equality, diversity and inclusion (EDI) across our organisation.

    Our commitment to diversity is that we take account of the differences between groups of people and we place a positive value on those differences. In our working practices, policies and behaviours, inclusion will be at the centre of all that we do and we will take a zero-tolerance approach to any form of discrimination. We recognise it is our role to advocate these principles in the services we deliver, across the sector workforce and through our partnerships.

    Active Lincolnshire strives for continuous improvement in our approach to equality, diversity and inclusion and recognises that we will always need to build on our education, awareness and commitment to making our organisation and the services we provide available and accessible to everyone without discrimination of any form.
