Walking meetings are part of the agenda at Yorkshire Sport Foundation, which believes in the power of sport and activity to change people’s lives, bring us together and tackle inequalities.

A quarter of the population are inactive and the National Lottery-funded charity, which is an Active Partnership, supports organisations across the nine districts of South and West Yorkshire. It works closely with partners to help individuals and communities overcome barriers to activity and build healthy habits for life.

Its vision is to create a vibrant, healthy and prosperous Yorkshire through everyone moving more. The charity's role is to connect, influence and provide support for sport and physical activity, increasing and improving the many ways people can take part and get active. It supports the work of local, regional and national organisations.

Yorkshire Sport Foundation is a great place to work — 94% of staff say they feel valued and supported by colleagues. Part of its recruitment process is to look internally and it has a long history of internal secondments to develop people. The charity promotes mentoring, internally and externally, and encourages teams to consider external secondments to develop the skills of staff and broaden their experience.

It is a Disability Confident employer and adheres to Activity Alliance's accessible communications guidance when advertising posts and promotion includes their channels. Fairness is one of the organisational values, and it is embedded into everything it does.

Quote from the top...
We include everyone, as we believe sport and physical activity is for everyone. We are building a culture where difference is valued because we believe diversity drives empathy, a sense of belonging and innovation. We still have work to do, and we know a diverse team has a positive impact on everything we do, helping us better serve our communities and partners.
