Inclusive Sport: Religion, belief and cultural awareness

Wednesday, February 22, 2023

Many of the world’s conflicts are rooted in intolerance and prejudice arising from differences in religion and culture.  


The Sport England Active Lives Adult Survey (2021) shows that participation in sport and physical activity is higher among certain faith groups.  For example, amongst those practising a religion, those who are Buddhist, Christian, Jewish or Sikh are more likely to be physically active. In contrast, activity levels are lowest amongst those who practise Islam.  Alongside this, those with no faith are significantly more likely to participate in sport and physical activity than those who practice.  

With this in mind, this webinar will explore how organisations can become more aware of the barriers to engagement experienced by different religious and cultural communities and how to overcome these. 

What will you learn

  • Data on the participation of people from different religious groups in sport and physical activity 
  • Barriers (both systemic and structural) and challenges that hinder the engagement of religiously diverse communities 
  • How to create meaningful connections with diverse communities and empower those who have traditionally been under-served 

Who is this for?

  • Anyone with an interest in learning more about religion, faith and cultural differences in the sport sector
  • Sport sector I&D professionals
  • Sport sector leaders
