star this property answer text <p><ins class="ministerial">The Department for Digital, Culture, Media and Sport (DCMS) has had no such discussions. National Governing Bodies of Sport (NGBs) are not public bodies, and as such are not subject to the Freedom of Information Act. NGBs are typically independent, self-appointed organisations that govern their sports through the common consent of their sport. Transparency is an important principal of good governance, and is reflected in our Code for Sport Governance, with which all bodies in receipt of UK Sport or Sport England funding must now demonstrate compliance. </ins></p><p><del class="ministerial">The cross-Government sport strategy ‘Sporting Future’ set out our intention to encourage as many people and groups to enjoy sport as participants, spectators and in the workforce, including the LGBT community. It also includes a number of other actions to ensure that all under-represented groups can take part in sport and wider physical activity through a focus on local delivery, and working with people through volunteering, coaching and the sporting workforce. Our aim is to increase diversity among sporting organisations and help the sport sector to be more inclusive and welcoming to all.</del></p><p> </p><p><del class="ministerial">Government continues to work with Sport England and National Governing Bodies of sport, alongside organisations including Pride Sports, Stonewall, and Kick it Out on a number of anti-homophobia initiatives aimed at encouraging inclusion. In March, Sport England commissioned Pride Sports to produce a second in depth report on barriers to LGBT participation. This research on volunteering, provision and attitudes and behaviours has been completed, and Sport England is currently considering what actions they will take based on the findings.</del></p><p> </p>

star this property answer text <p>The Department for Digital, Culture, Media and Sport does not hold any information on cases of discrimination in elite sport. Although UK Sport does not hold disaggregated data on discrimination, since 2013, UK Sport has received two complaints on the basis of race discrimination (one of which was related to grassroots sport), one gymnastics-related complaint on the basis of gender, and multiple cycling-related complaints on the basis of gender against a cycling coach's alleged comments to a female rider. UK Sport has received no complaints regarding sexual orientation.</p><p>There is no place for racism, sexism, homophobia or any other kind of discrimination in sport. Tackling discrimination lies at the heart of the cross-government sport strategy &quot;Sporting Future&quot; and we want sport to be at the forefront of equality. Government continues to work with National Governing Bodies and organisations such as Kick It Out, Stonewall and Women in Football to tackle discrimination in local, national and international sport. Our aim is to increase diversity among sporting organisations and to help the sport sector be more inclusive and welcoming to its spectators, participants and people in its workforce. Our Code for Sport Governance stipulates that funded sporting organisations should publish information about their work to foster all aspects of diversity within their leadership and decision-making.</p><p><strong> </strong></p>
