Equality, Inclusivity & Diversity

Riverside Archery Club is dedicated to encouraging a supportive culture where every person is respected, valued and encouraged. We are opposed to all forms of unlawful and unfair discrimination and we are committed to never providing less favourable facilities or treatment because of age, disability, gender reassignment, marriage and civil partnership, pregnancy and maternity, race, ethnic origin, nationality, national origin, religion or belief, or sex and sexual orientation (together known as the protected characteristics).

Diversity is about recognising, respecting and valuing different experiences, viewpoints, cultures, lifestyles and approaches of all our members.

We will:

  • Create an environment in which individual differences and the contributions of everyone are recognised, celebrated and valued
  • Create an environment that promotes dignity and respect for all
  • Not accept any form of discrimination, intimidation, bullying, victimisation or harassment, and we will take disciplinary action against anyone who breaks this policy
  • Promote equality as good practice
  • Encourage anyone who experiences discrimination to raise their concerns so that we can take action

Any individual interested in archery, from any sector of the community, is welcome to apply to be a member of our club or to be a direct member of Archery GB and all applicants will be required also to join the County and Region. Except where there is good reason, all applications should be considered favourably.
