Diversity policy

Diversity statement

Volleyball England has a desire, a duty of care and is committed to ensuring that we provide services fairly and without discrimination to all who want to participate in the sport of volleyball.

We pride ourselves in that we are an open and accessible sport and that there are no barriers to participation across the organisation, from players and volunteers to staff and Board members. In our strategy to service our Core Market, we will continue to focus on making volleyball available to all individuals and groups who are currently not fully involved in our sport. A key aim of the Volleyball England Board is to extend the diversity from our Board (with a 50/50 gender balance) into our working groups and to all areas of the organisation. Volleyball England will take all appropriate actions to ensure a minimum of 30% of each gender on its Board. 

As the National Governing Body, for a mixed gender sport, we recognise diversity and we value everyone’s individual differences. We strive to maintain and continuously improve our working practices to benefit all those who participate or would like to participate in our sport. Anyone who has the desire to be involved in the sport of volleyball should be encouraged to take up the opportunity and be nurtured to reach their full potential.
