TRANS INCLUSION IN SPORT AND PHYSICAL ACTIVITY

We know that by increasing knowledge and confidence, we can enable Sport and Physical Activity providers to create and implement realistic, welcoming, everyday trans inclusive policies and practices.

Everyone should be able to enjoy the benefits of an active life and no-one should be excluded from being active.

In August 2020, members of Northamptonshire Sport undertook Trans Inclusion in Sport and Physical Activity Awareness training delivered by Gendered Intelligence.

Tackling inequality lies at the heart of our aims towards an active Bedfordshire and we're working with the sport and physical activity sector to help it become ever more inclusive, so that more people from all backgrounds can enjoy sport and exercise.

We're working with a wide range of organisations, including young trans groups but are always looking to work with other organisations that are looking for help or support within the topic of trans inclusion.

We recognise there's an ongoing discussion around trans inclusion in competitive sport, but this is separate to the issue of participation and exercise, which is our primary focus.
