Black, Asian and minority ethnic people working or volunteering in community sport can feel “patronised and poorly represented” within the grassroots and community sport sector, according to new research published by Sported.
The aim of this research project, conducted by Sported, the Sport for Development charity, was to understand, directly from their networks, experiences of racism within the community sport sector. This was so that they could identify key themes, advocate on their behalf, identify potential solutions and establish support going forward.
Key themes that were drawn out through this research are:
• Systemic racism
• Current approaches to tackling racism
• The BLM Agenda
• Representation in sport
