The Foundation is committed to giving all young people the chance to enjoy the benefits of golf. Through our HSBC Golf Roots projects and partners, the Golf Foundation is able to highlight the opportunities that golf can offer to young disabled people so this charity is delighted to have passed the Preliminary Level of the Equality Standard in Sport with our partners England Golf and the PGA.
The assessor’s summary of the Golf Foundation states:
“The Golf Foundation has great strengths with regard to equality. They are very aware of the barriers to participation for diverse groups and also the routes into golf and are taking steps to address these through a range of products and programmes that are seen as good practice for the sport sector. It is evident that equality is integral to their thinking and that this is led from the top with the Board and the CEO and equality is evident as one of their core values.”
Sandy Jones, President of the Golf Foundation, said: “We are delighted to have passed the Preliminary Level in this very important Equality Standard. Whether a player wants to get active through golf, or become an elite performer, the Golf Foundation aims to provide a strong platform to enable young disabled people to start their golfing journey.”
