Last December, the five sports councils responsible for funding sport and physical activity across the UK published the first six-month progress report on their actions in response to the Tackling Racism and Racial Inequality in Sport (TRARIIS) review.
We know from the review that racism remains an everyday reality in sport in the UK, often causing a devastating impact on the lives and mental wellbeing of the targeted individuals and their families.
This reinforces our collective determination to promote and enable urgent systemic change to tackle racism and eradicate racial discrimination from the sporting system.
It also highlights the need for more effective measures to protect individuals who experience racism or any other kind of abuse in sport.
In our last update in December, we noted that our priority over the following six months would be to engage with our external partners on the outcomes of the TRARIIS review and the need to deliver action against our five overarching commitments relating to People, Representation, Structures and Systems, Insights and Investment.
The five sports councils have been meeting regularly and collaborating as a group to share and review actions we have initiated in line with those commitments.
