Research from Sport England to understand factors which influence sporting behaviour.
Boosting participation in sport can generate a variety of socio-economic benefits. Sport can, and does, make a profound and positive impact on individuals, communities and wider society.

The aim is to provide the information needed to make the best strategic and investment decisions.

This resource has been developed by Sporting Equals as a result of extensive research over the last few years and provides some useful advice and best practice for swimming providers which can be used to help tailor products and offers to meet the needs of some BME communities.
To support sport providers such as National Governing Bodies, Local Authorities and leisure providers and to help with understanding of how to engage BME communities in sport, Sporting Equals have developed five key archetypes. These BME archetypes were developed as a result of research by Sporting Equals over a number of years through desktop research, focus groups, questionnaires and consultation with local communities. Sporting Equals will continue to conduct further research into these archetypes over the year to share a deeper understanding of these communities and develop learning. This resource is packed with advice and guidance to enable you to help sports providers think about and begin planning interventions to engage BME communities.
