Equality & Diversity

As part of our ongoing work to uphold the principles and values of equality across our work, Bowls Scotland's Equality and Diversity Group consist of professional sports development staff, club volunteers and players. This ensures we have a balance of lived experience as well as knowledge and understanding of equality and diversity within a sporting context.

The Equality and Diversity Group discuss and action matters pertaining to equality and diversity in the sport of lawn bowls. They review and contribute towards the implementation of Bowls Scotland’s Equality Action Plan and support equality and diversity projects within lawn bowls.

In line with Bowls Scotland’s culture and values of Collaboration, Inclusivity, Integrity and Clarity, the group will work towards achieving the Bowls Scotland strategic objectives and overall vision of a modern, accessible sport for all.
