In its continuing drive to get women, people with disabilities and ethnic minorities to exercise regularly, Sport England has started a review of its No Limits Policy.

Originally launched in 2002, the No Limits Policy aimed to get women, people with disabilities and ethnic minorities to take part in moderate intensity sport for 30 mintues three times a week.

There is still some way to go - the organisation’s Active People survey showed that these groups remain less active than others.

Less than four million women do sport regularly each week, compared to five million men.

Just under 9 per cent of people with a long-term illness or disability do sport regularly, compared to over 23 per cent of other people and 18.6 per cent of black and ethnic minority groups do sport regularly, compared to 21 per cent of white adults.

“In order to realise our ambition of getting two million people doing more sport by 2012, we have to reach out to women, people with disabilities and those from ethnic minority backgrounds,” says Sport England’s chief executive, Jennie Price.

“We want to hear from people about what has worked and how we could do more to promote equality with a view to increasing participation in community sport.”

Led by chair of the North East Regional Sports Board, Tim Cantle-Jones, the review will both update the No Limits Equality Policy and ensure the effectiveness of the Equality Standard – a framework for widening access and increasing participation in community sport among these groups.

The English Federation of Disability Sport, Women’s Sports Foundations and Sporting Equals Limited will be partners during the process.
